2-day-old baby found wrapped in towel at dumpsite


Police in Karoi are investigating a case of baby dumping which occurred at a dump site near Chiedza Primary School, where a two-day-old baby was found wrapped in a white towel at the dump site.

Police have since referred the baby boy to Karoi Hospital for further management.

The incident comes after police in Mubaira recently arrested Shamiso Isaya (37) in connection with a case of infanticide which occurred at Katsande village, Mubaira, on October 22, 2022, where the suspect allegedly threw her two children aged five months and three years, into a 17-metre-deep well after a misunderstanding with her husband.

The five-month-old female infant drowned, while the three-year-old boy was rescued by neighbours and rushed to a local clinic, where he was treated and discharged.
