Mother Dumps Baby…Stuffs Stones In Baby’s Mouth
Cowdray Park suburb residents were left in shock after discovering a newborn baby dumped, stuffed with stones in the mouth and stashed in a black plastic refuse bag.
According to reports, children playing at a rubbish dump on Thursday morning became curious when they realized that there was something moving inside the refuse bag which attracted a crowd but they were all afraid to intervene.
However, brave Sithokozile Ngwenya rescued the baby whom she named Nothando, meaning the mother of love, together with the nurses at Mpilo Central Hospital.
“People were scared but I gathered courage and opened the plastic bag and rescued the baby who was shivering as a result of the cold,” said Mrs Ngwenya.
“I have since offered to raise the baby and the hospital authorities said I will be assisted by social welfare workers who will make assessments before I take the baby under my custody,” said Mrs Ngwenya.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Precious Simango confirmed the incident.
“We are dealing with a case of a newborn baby that was found dumped at a dump site in Cowdray Park suburb,” said Insp Simango
The newborn, who has since been dubbed “miracle baby” has been nicknamed ‘MuChina’ due to her light skin by nurses at the Pediatric ward where she is admitted.
