The Chipata Magistrate Court refuses to grant bail to woman who dumped her baby in a pit latrine.

A 21 year old girl of Chipata’s Chawama Compound who dumped her baby in a pit latrine, two weeks ago has been denied bail by the Chipata Magistrate court.
This was after Eunice Sakala applied for bail so that she can continue looking after her child.
In her ruling, Principal Magistrate, Twambo Musonda said that although there has been no objection over the application to bail, she would use her discretion not to grant the accused bail at this time.
Particulars of the offence are that Eunice Sakala on August 30th 2013 unlawfully attempted to cause the death of an unnamed child.
The matter has since been adjourned to September 24, 2013 for mention.
