One-year-old strangled by father for making noise

A Zimbabwean man, Clemency Gurwe, has been charged to court for allegedly killing his one-year-old baby.

He reportedly slapped and strangled the baby for making a noise.

According to iHarare, the beating incident happened in April.

It was reported that Gurwe had been in the company with his wife, Mitchell Manyangadze, at their home when the little boy started crying.

Gurwe reportedly lifted the baby with one hand and started slapping and strangling him until the boy started bleeding from the nose.

The baby was taken to the hospital, the next morning. Health workers advised Manyangadze to report the case to the police.

She did and Gurwe was arrested.

He had been in prison custody until June 26, charged for attempted murder while the child was referred to Silveira Hospital where he was admitted.

From there, the baby was moved to Masvingo Provincial Hospital where he was discharged days later and put on weekly reviews.

The little boy died on July 07 and Gurwe is now facing murder charges.

Masvingo provincial police spokesperson, Chief Inspector Charity Mazula, confirmed the incident.
