Its unfortunate kuti amuna akusowa oti akanampatsa mimba mwanayu. Ma donor alipo ambiri akanamupatsa. Koma mpaka kuba? Vito lake ndi chani at 16? Nayenso obetsa mwanayo umbuli ndi kupusa komwe. A truly incredible story befitting a funny Nollywood movie.

Why hiding the face of this evil woman? These are the people the public should see and take note of.

First of all let me correct the reporter or the publisher of the story. It is not ethical or right to reveal the name of the child who appears to be a suspect here. And again, you call her a 16 year old woman instead of a girl. I might not be a lawyer but I know that the law protects juveniles of their identity even when they break the law.
Dig that!
