Cop Left Holding a 9-Month-Old Outside a Supermarket

A 27-YEAR-OLD woman from Bulawayo's Sizinda  suburb caused a stir in the city centre when she dumped her nine-month-old son outside a supermarket where her cop boyfriend was before disappearing after the latter had failed to give her money for the upkeep of the child.

This incident was heard when the woman, Ellen Ndlovu, appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Miss Evelyn Mashavakure, for contravening Section 7 (1) of the Children's Protection and Adoption Act Chapter 5:06 (ill-treating or neglect of children).

She pleaded guilty. Mr Trust Muduma said that on 30 November this year, Ndlovu phoned her boyfriend, Murirwa Mudzingwa, who is employed by the Zimbabwe Republic Police and stationed at Trastech, and told him that the $20 he had given her towards the upkeep of their baby was exhausted.

Mudzingwa told Ndlovu to meet him at TM Hyper where he told her that he was broke and would give her the money when he got it.

This did not go down well with Ndlovu who in a fit of rage left the baby in his custody before proceeding to an unknown destination.

The court heard that Mudzingwa tried to locate her but no avail and stayed with baby, who was crying uncontrollably, for more than seven hours.

The desperate man tried to call Ndlovu but she told him that she was not coming back and was going to spend the night at a relative's house.

However, it was heard that after dumping the baby, Ndlovu went to Waverley Hotel where she started drinking beer. The court further heard that Mudzingwa, with the help of his friend, went to the hotel and found Ndlovu dead drunk. Mudzingwa tried to give her the child but she refused and even refused to breastfeed the hungry child.

For the offence, she was ordered to perform 210 hours of community service at Maphisa Primary school.
