One of the women, Boitumelo Basana (31) pleaded guilty to helping Pearl David (20) to commit an abortion on November 17, 2016 at Phase Six.

The two were slapped with a similar charge of procuring abortion.

In mitigation, David told the court to have mercy upon her saying that the time she spent in jail after she committed the offence has taught her a great painful lesson that she will never repeat.

David pleaded with the court not to send her to jail but at least give her any other sentence other than jail.

“Since I was sent to jail, I have become a God-abiding citizen and I will never repeat what I did,” said David.

On the other hand, Basana said the court should consider that she is a first offender and did not waste time by agreeing to the offence.

“I am taking care of orphans at home, one of which is having kidney complications.”

Asked by Basupi what she used to assist David to abort, Basana said that she used a stick

to help David abort her child.

Said Basana when asked by Basupi where she took the stick from: “Someone gave me the stick to use to help David to abort her child.”

After Basana answered, Basupi told her that photos that were taken from the crime scene show that someone who was experienced in helping women to abort their children designed the stick.

“The album shows that the stick was designed in a way that was going to cause serious harm to the head of the child after it was inserted in the woman’s genitals,” said Basupi.

David shocked the court when she revealed that she paid Basana P100 as deposit to help her abort her child and had promised to give her another P100 if the abortion went well.

The court also heard that David called the hospital after the abortion did not go as planned which led to the accused’s arrest.

Chimbisana Sechele represented the state in the matter.

The duo is due in court on February 20 for sentencing.
