A newborn baby boy was found abandoned in the bushes in Tsakani Extension 10, Ekurhuleni, on Wednesday, March 15.

According to the spokesperson for Tsakane SAPS Sergeant Lerato Mngomezulu, it is alleged by the community members that an unknown woman was seen during the early hours in the morning carrying what looked like a baby then dumping it.

“It believed that the baby was a day old. A case of child neglect has been opened and a search for the child’s mother has been launched. We condemn such behavior and urge community members to make use of available social workers.

“The baby was suffocated and had some head injuries, it was then taken to the government mortuary after examination. We are calling on anyone who might have information about the perpetrator to come forward. They can also contact the SAPS Crime Stop on 08600 or 10111,” explained Sargeant Mngomezulu.

Selina Mdlalose (36) “We are very angry as the community members because this person had many options to consider instead of killing and dumping her baby. There are many people and couples who are desperate and willing to adopt. said one of the residents.”

“The woman who has done this has no shame and she deserves to be locked behind bars for the rest of her life. She should have used protection if she did not want to have this child”, said another community member, Joe Mofokeng.
