An unsuspecting newly born bouncing baby boy has survived the wrath of her own mother who allegedly dumped him in a toilet with the intent to conceal his birth.
Dowa Police publicist, Alice Sitima identifies the suspect as Susan Ndizo, 30, from Chiponde Village in Traditional Authority Mkukula in the district.
Sitima says Rose Jaison reported to the police that she heard the cry of a newly born baby. Jaison concluded the suspect was delivering since she knew that she was pregnant.
“When the reporter went out of her house to assist, she noticed that the sound was coming from her toilet. Upon entering the toilet, she found the suspect busy throwing bricks into the latrine with an intent to kill the child,” says Sitima.
After demolishing the toilet, they found a live bouncing baby boy. He was rushed to Dowa District Hospital for medical attention.
Sitima says they have since arrested the suspect who is expected to appear before court soon to answer the charge of attempting to conceal the birth of a child.
