Police in Mangochi have arrested 18-year-old Aisha Rajab from Namwera village, TA Mchiramwela in Thyolo for allegedly stealing an 11-month-old baby boy.
Mangochi Police Spokesperson Amina Daudi identifies the biological mother of the baby as 32-year-old Shakira Ajidu.
The police allege that Rajab, on the said date, visited the complainant’s house where she found the owner getting prepared to take her child to hospital.
“Taking advantage of the situation, the suspect asked to babysit the toddler and she later disappeared with the baby,” says Daudi.
A few minutes later, the mother was surprised not to find her children outside the house which prompted her to check at a nearby video showroom where they usually play, but the baby was not there.
“The incident was reported immediately to Makokola Police Unit who initiated investigations. The suspect was later arrested on the evening of the same day on her way to Katema with the child,” says Daudi.
