Teen Mum Kills Son (2) to Prove Love to New Bae
The baby daddy requested to see the child on 6 April, and the teen mum allegedly said he was in Gauteng visiting her relative.
A TEENAGE mum (17) allegedly killed her two-year-old son to prove her love to her new boyfriend.
She was arrested on Saturday, 15 April after her baby daddy reported the case to the police.
Limpopo police spokesman Colonel Malesela Ledwaba told Daily Sun Thohoyandou cops and the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit are investigating the case. Ledwaba said:
“We are considering the sensitivity of the case and the fact that the Child Justice Act is kicking in because it involves minors.
We are not going to get into details until after the due process, then we will update you.”
The baby daddy apparently requested to see the child on 6 April, and the mum allegedly said he was in Gauteng visiting her relative.
