THE Ndola High Court has heard how a 32 year old woman  dumped her newborn baby in a pit latrine after she delivered.

This is in a case in which Lydia Mweshi is charged with infanticide contrary to section 203 of the Penal Code.

When the matter came up for trial before Ndola High Court judge Daniel Musonda, Mweshi pleaded guilty and was convicted after she admitted.

According to facts presented by National Prosecutions Authority state advocate, Innocent Kamunga, On December 9, last year, police in Chipulukusu received information that an infant had been dumped in a toilet.

Mr Kamunga said the information was received from a concerned member of the Chipulukusu community after the infant was heard crying while in the pit latrine.

He said acting on the information, police instituted through investigations which led to the apprehension of Mweshi.

Mr Kamunga said Mweshi was then taken to Ndola Teaching Hospital where it was confirmed by medical personnel that she had recently given birth.

He said on the same day the infant was retrieved with the help of the Fire Brigade and was taken to Arthur Davison Children’s Hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Mr Kamunga informed court that the postmortem conducted by Dr Volodymyr Petrenko revealed the cause of death of the child as asphyxia of the immature due to an undetermined cause.

“Subsequently, the accused was charged and arrested with the offence of infanticide. The accused person unlawfully did cause the death of the infant,” he said.

In her mitigations, through her lawyer, Chisala Bwalya, Mweshi regretted causing the death of her child.

Mrs Bwalya said the time spent in custody, Mweshi had time to reflect on her mischief and is ashamed of herself.

She said her client has two toddlers whom she left with mother and the same depend on her

“My Lord, my client has promised not to engage herself in criminality. She prays to the court to be lenient with her as death of her baby will forever haunt her,” Mrs Bwalya said.

Judge Musonda has reserved sentence in the matter to September 20 this year.
