Hacked pupil loses pregnancy

A 16-YEAR-OLD pupil of Chipata who was hacked, allegedly by her boyfriend, has lost her four-month-pregnancy due to severe trauma and stress shock.
Chipata General Hospital acting superintendent Daniel Makawa said on Wednesday that Gertrude Mwanza, a Grade 11 pupil at Chipata Day Secondary School whose left arm was amputated leading to severe trauma and stress shock on Sunday is stable.
Dr Makawa said Gertrude is undergoing counselling at the hospital to help her recover from the severe trauma and stress disorder she suffered.
On Monday, Eastern Province Deputy Commissioner of Police Patrick Bili said Gertrude was allegedly axed on the neck around 15:00 hours by her boyfriend, Ranford Soko of Anoya Zulu Secondary School, because she refused to terminate her unborn baby.  The 18-year-old Ranford has been arrested.
