A R50 note that blew up against a fence sparked a horrific Christmas Day drunken domestic dispute which ended with a 10month-old baby boy dying in hospital and his mother being arrested in connection with his death.
The baby had allegedly been thrown to the ground by his 28-year-old mother during an argument with his 24-year-old father. He suffered at home for 10 days before being taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday.
Uitenhage police spokeswoman Warrant Officer Gerda Swart said the woman was arrested yesterday and was expected to appear in the Uitenhage Magistrate’s Court today, where she would be charged with child abuse and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, among other charges.
