A newborn baby was found by a passer-by at Ecaleni’s dumping site on May 9.

Tembisa communications officer Captain Manyadza Ralidzhivha said a woman from eXubeni Section found a newborn baby inside a black, plastic refuse bag while she was dumping stuff at the site.

“The child was still alive and the woman took the child to a hospital.

“The mother of the child is unknown,” said Ralidzhivha.

Tembisa police are appealing to community members who may have any information about the parents of the dumped newborn baby to come forward.
