26-year-old sentenced for killing her baby
24 February 2012
A 26-year-old woman was sentenced to six years in jail for killing her baby and storing it in a freezer like a packet of meat.
Buzelwa Gini strangled her baby just over a year ago, froze the body, wrapped it up and gave the body to children to give to her boyfriend.
Community members of the West Side informal settlement near Villiersdorp in the Western Cape said they were shocked to hear about the murder.
Not even Gini’s family knew she was pregnant.
It is believed she gave birth in the toilets opposite the house she shared with her aunt.
Some believe that Gini has psychological problems and her uncle believes she was possessed when she killed the baby.
