Two Babies Dumped in a pit-latrine
Babies are said to be the greatest and precious gift ever given to motherhood. They are also said to be the source of happiness both to a man and a woman. But this wasn’t the case for two women who dumped their babies in a pit latrine
Yesterday two babies were retrieved naked from pit latrines in two separate incidents in the capital city of Zambia Lusaka. The two babies are believed to have been dumped by their own mothers. One of the mothers believed to have dumped the baby in a pit used as a toilet is not known while the other is known. The baby of unknown mother was removed by a generous man and died on the way to the clinic. The other baby was heard crying by the mother’s cousin who wanted to take a quick bath before going to school. The girl later informed her mother (Aunt to the baby’s mother) that she heard a baby crying in the pit, the mother immediately called the fire Bridget. The baby was removed from the pit already breathless. An Aunt to the mother of the baby was shocked to learn that her niece would do such a thing. The two babies were covered with human worst as the lay on the ground of two different residential areas. The reason for the act is still not known as the two women are in hiding.
While many woman suffer at the hand of been barren, others use the privilege as an obstacle in life. It is lack of sense and morals to carry a child for nine months and only to dump it when it has the right to live. Why not abstain or use protection if one has no means and desire to care and look after their own fresh and blood.
