Dead baby found under the bed ...mother arrested


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

A shocking incident involving the discovery of a dead baby under a bed in Katutura last weekend led to the arrest of a 24-year old Katutura woman.
The woman, Emma Nandjembo, made her first appearance at Katutura Magistrate Court last week, charged with two counts, first of murder and another of birth concealment.
The body of the baby was found in a bag under a bed at her Okuryangava home.
The court did not indicate whether the baby was alive at birth but Nandjembo was charged with concealment of birth of an infant that died before, during or after birth.
Nandjembo, who is still in police custody, is conducting her own defence in this case and was granted N$1000 bail.
The case is still under investigation by the police thus the case was remanded to 20 October 2011.
She is currently held at the Wanaheda Police Station.
