A Chitungwiza man was hauled to court yesterday charged with attempted murder of his unborn child after he allegedly slipped an abortion pill into his girlfriend’s womb.
Tatenda was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Barbra Mateko who released him on $100 bail.
The State led by Sabastian told the court that Magombeyi was having an extra marital affair with one Betha which resulted in her getting pregnant.
Magombeyi was unwilling to keep the pregnancy and asked Betha to abort it but she refused and was insistent on keeping it.
Chindewere’s insistence caused Magombeyi to insert the abortion pill into Chindewere’s womb without her knowledge with the intention to terminate the pregnancy.
Magombeyi fell ill on March 27 and visited the hospital where a doctor who attended to her discovered a pill that was inserted in her privates.
The matter has since been remanded.
