A NEWBORN baby survived a narrow death after the mother buried him in a shallow grave shortly after his birth in Mambo Njelele’s district, Gokwe.
It is believed that the baby was still alive when the mother (Yeukai Mano) tried to burry the child alive. The reason for this unacceptable act was that the father had refused to take the responsibility of the child as he claimed that it was another man’s Child.
It was fortunate that just after the mother burried the child, a person was passing through the shallow grave and he noticed that there was a child burried. He then notified the police and the mother of the Child was arrested
