Namagoya, who hails from Pongwe village, Traditional Authority Chikowi in Zomba, is said to be a friend to the baby’s mother, Bridget Maxwell and is expected to appear in court Thursday to answer theft of child contrary to Section 167 of the Penal Code.

According to Blantyre Police deputy spokesperson, Andrew Mayawo, the suspect is married to a Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital attendant and has a secret affair with a Malawi Institute of Tourism employee.

“She had been lying to her secret lover that she was pregnant for him and gave birth on January 16,” said Mayawo.

Then the secret lover asked the suspect to bring the child on February 9 so he could see the baby and present it to his parents in Nkolokosa.

This apparently exerted pressure on the suspect, who later thought of stealing her friend’s baby to cover up her earlier pregnancy claims.
