Residents of Ngcingwana village, near Dutywa, saw the dog eating the decomposing head on Sunday evening, Captain Jackson Manatha said.
They called the police, who found a 21-year-old black woman in the area who had recently given birth. Her baby died and was buried in a shallow grave in the garden of her home. It could not be established if the baby was born alive.
The woman would appear before the Dutywa Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on a charge of concealment of birth.- SAPA
