Woman dumps baby in graveyard


Police in Blantyre have arrested a 20-year-old woman for dumping a newborn baby in a graveyard.

Limbe Police Station Deputy Public Relations Officer Widson Nhlane said the suspect Joyce Nyontho was six months pregnant when she gave birth to a baby girl.

“In the morning of this fateful day, she complained to her boyfriend that she had a stomach ache and later in the same morning hours she delivered a premature baby girl,” he explained.

She then went to a nearby graveyard where she dumped the baby.

Later, a passerby heard the cry of the baby and noted that it was a newly born baby struggling for life.

The matter was therefore reported to Police who took the baby girl and rushed with her to Queen Elizabeth Central hospital where she is receiving treatment.

According to Nhlane, the baby’s mother has been arrested and will appear before court soon to answer charge of concealing birth of a child.

Police are appealing to women in the country to be responsible and refrain from malicious behaviour after giving birth.

Nyontho comes from Chiholomba village, Traditional Authority Kalembo in Balaka district.

  4. We need more help for woman. Was she suffering from PPD? Its serious and it happens. Shame. So soooo sad.

    I’m sure there’s actually no understanding of the condition. It is attrocious what she’s done. Even if we can’t cope, the baby should never suffer. But depression does this. PPD does it to people.

    Some woman end up with PPD if they’re left alone. Men leave, and don’t support. Then woman try. Which happened to me. But its a load we can’t carry ourselves. And it literally causes this. Do we know what’s happened. No. But still again. Its no excuse. Babies should not suffer.

  5. Some ladies are stupid when it comes to sex. They don’t think of pregnancy, diseases or divorce. Afterwards they say it was a mistake.

  8. Mr Guest, Malawian women think that plain sex is a tool to impress a man- result? Unwanted pregnancy! Men also have a problem….. They assume that a woman who give it up ( wholesomely) are in serious love. Zotsatila zimenezi

  11. Demon-cracy brought all these satanic/ sinful/ stupid/ shameful ideas in Malawi. Bandas one party system was too good bcz he did not allow/ tolerate all these nonsense. People were afraid/ respecting parents/ one another. After Banda everything is in chambos even those people whom they were encouraging people to vote for demon-cracy ( democracy) are unable to control these satanic-activities, one of them is ” our first former democratic-president che Muluzi.

  12. Poor little girl!.. Why don’t you put that child on sell?, I was supposed to buy that child. We don’t have children’s out here then you throw away the child , …… You must be punished for your stupid action!…. Isaaaaaa
