A 35 year old woman of Mufulira, Copperbelt, has been arrested for causing the death of her neighbour’s one-month-old baby, which she slept on while in a drunken stupour.
Christine Musonda, of Kawama East Township, who was arrested on Saturday, has been charged for manslaughter.
The baby’s mother, Marian Chinyama, 32, reported to the police that her baby boy died after Musonda allegedly slept on it.
Meanwhile Christine Musonda admitted sleeping on the baby boy but blamed beer for her actions. “When I returned from drinking, I entered my neighbor’s house thinking it was mine and slept on the baby boy, that’s how he died. I never intended to kill him, it’s beer that has caused all this ‘, she lamented as she cried.
