WINDHOEK, 09 NOV (NAMPA) - A 30-year-old woman was on Monday arrested in Tsumeb for allegedly aborting her five-month pregnancy.
Namibian Police Force (NamPol) spokesperson, Inspector Slogan Matheus told Nampa on Wednesday Hileni Ndnelago Kambangula allegedly took some 10 unknown tablets while apparently knowing she was five months pregnant and as a result aborted the foetus.
Kambangula allegedly put the aborted foetus in a plastic bag and dumped it at an open field in the vicinity of a restaurant and hotel at the town.
She is now receiving medical treatment at the Tsumeb State Hospital under strict police guard.
Her case was Tuesday dealt with by the Tsumeb Magistrate's Court in her absence and was postponed until 16 November as police investigations are at an initial stage.
