Drunk woman mistakenly kills baby in Zambia
According to news reports, a woman identified as Mrs. Mirriam Kalonda of Lusaka in Olympia, Zambia, mistakenly killed her only daughter believed to be just three weeks old.
The Zambian Observer reports that Mirriam had a lot of drinks on a Saturday night with her friends who came to visit her home. It is also believed she slept over her daughter as she was very drunk and woke up in the morning with a dead baby girl’s body.
Her husband has said he will file for divorce and insist she should be jailed for killing their only child because of her recklessness and unacceptable behaviour.
He came back from work in the morning as he was working night shift, only to be greeted with the sad news of the death of his child.
Mr Richard Kalonda further said he stopped her from taking alcohol but she couldn’t listen and this is the disappointment she could offer to him and the family-at-large.
Meanwhile, Mirriam is said to be currently under observation as she also attempted to suicide after the whole incident.
