Shocker As 21-Year-Old Mom Holds On To Corpse For Three Weeks
A 21-YEAR-OLD Chipinge woman reportedly kept her daughter’s decomposing corpse in her bedroom for about three weeks.
Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luxson Chananda, confirmed the incident which happened in the medium density area of Chipinge.
The mother of the baby, Barbra Sithole, and her mother (whose name was not disclosed) are assisting police with investigations.
“Police in Chipinge are investigating a case involving a woman and her mother.
“The two kept the decomposing body of an infant in their house. It is not clear when the baby was born, but it is believed the baby might have died three weeks ago.
He added that the decomposing body of the baby was found wrapped in a blanket.
The Manica Post reports that it’s news crew caught up with the baby’s father Witness Jesi who said his daughter died due to neglect.
Jesi said he separated with his then pregnant wife before she went back to live with her mother.
He alleges that on June 23, he was at a local shopping centre when he was confronted by his ex-wife’s relative who demanded to know why he was not visiting her to see their newly-born baby girl.
He then visited his ex-wife at the makeshift structure she was living in with her mother.
“I asked her about the baby’s whereabouts and instead of responding, she just showed me the decomposing body of the baby. It was wrapped in a blanket. When I unwrapped the blanket, I got the shock of my life as the baby’s skull had already separated from the body. I notified their neighbour before making a police report,” said Jesi.
Police attended the scene and took the body to Chipinge District Hospital for a post-mortem. The two women are in police custody.
According to investigating officers, Barbra and her mother are not revealing much as they are not answering most of the questions posed to them.
