The story below might upset some readers, including children.
The murder case against a 42-year-old woman who allegedly beat her 11-month-old son to death has been postponed at the Tshaulu Periodical Court, outside Thohoyandou, in Limpopo.
Police say Ndishavhani Mutavhatsindi allegedly assaulted the baby at home at Ha-Lambani on Sunday.
The baby was rescued by community members who heard him crying. He later died at a local clinic.
The case was postponed to June 29 for further investigations.
Police could not take Mutavhatsindi inside the courtroom as she appeared agitated.
She was shouting while sitting on the floor outside the courtroom, guarded by the police.
Mutavhatsindi kept on saying she was ordered by the spirits to kill her son.
The 42-year-old woman said her family knows why she killed her son and they must speak out.
She was chained and taken back to the police cells, flanked by the police and relatives.
Mutavhatsindi joins Pontsho Mohlanka from Orange Farm and Limpopo’s Lucas Phasha in the list of parents who are on trial for taking the lives of their children.
