The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) reports that on the 29th of this month, an infant was killed in a fatal Road Traffic Accident when an animal-drawn vehicle ran over the child along Georgia-Garanyemba Road, Guyu, while her mother, who had left the child lying by the roadside, was harvesting Mopani worms.
In a related case, a one-year-old infant who had followed her mother to the garden, drowned in a well whilst her mother (18) was fetching some vegetables on Tuesday 28 December 2021 at Manjolo, Binga.
Meanwhile, an 8-month-old baby drowned in a dish full of water placed beside a bed on which the baby was lying in Dzivarasekwa, Harare yesterday whilst her mother (24) was doing her laundry outside the house.
