Bajeneza Liberata, from Rwanda, has narrated how her husband told her to kill their deformed baby boy because it had been “spawned by the devil.”
She was abandoned by him immediately after the delivery.
The dad insisted he had no responsibility for the child and called it the devil’s spawn before walking out on her.
This left the mother stranded as she struggled to care for herself and her child, alongside her other children.
Bajeneza told Afrimax English that she had given birth to several other children and had not experienced any issues.
As she couldn’t keep up with life in the city, a good samaritan eventually offered to drive Bajeneza and her baby back to her village.
Since she returned to the village, other villagers have been tormenting her, making fun of the baby and calling it a monster and an “alien”.
Bajeneza has been struggling to care for herself and her son who appears to be in a lot of pain. She said she doesn’t even know what condition her child is suffering from.
