BIKITA – It is a cruel world for women.
A married woman buries her new baby, born out of an adulterous affair in a shallow grave to hide the sin. Fortunately, the baby is found alive after spending four hours covered with sand.
Hazvinei Sithole (24) of Mamvura Village under Chief Mukanganwi is in a polygamous marriage where she shares her husband with her sister. The husband who works in South Africa has not been home for more than a year and Sithole falls into an extramarital affair that results in an unwanted baby.


She feels guilty that she had sex with another man even when her husband deprived her of conjugal rights for a long period. Her sense of shame and remorse sees her digging a shallow grave in the dead of the night and burying the baby she has just given birth to.
In a community that is very traditional, no one blames the husband Pardon Mushori for the unenvious position that he places his two wives. Sithole is blamed for being a loose woman.
Sources told The Mirror that Sithole gave birth alone on the morning of May 21, 2022 at around 3am.


Her village head, Augustine Mudzimu confirmed the incident to The Mirror.
Police spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident.
Sithole did not tell her sister that she had given birth but instead said she was bleeding.
The sister became suspicious and notified neighbours who questioned Sithole but she maintained her stance. The neighbours searched around and found a freshly dugout pit in which the baby was buried.


They found the baby at 7am.
Mudzimu said villagers were very happy to find the baby alive.
“We are happy that the baby is still alive. It could have suffocated from the soil in the pit or the harsh cold conditions,” said Mudzimu.
Sithole and the baby are admitted at Bikita Rural Hospital and the woman is in the hands of Police as she is being charged of baby dumping.https://masvingomirror.com/
