The dead body of a newborn baby was found abandoned in a yellow bucket in Wallacedene yesterday morning.
The sickening find was made by a scrap collector in the Mhongo informal settlement.
The bucket was found on an open field near the shacks.
While oblivious children were playing soccer, shocked adults started looking for clues about the mother.
“The baby was naked and the umbilical cord was still attached,” a woman says.
“We could not tell whether it was a girl or boy in the bucket.
“We are not trying to find out who was pregnant here in the camp so we can trace the mother.”
Police did not respond to queries about the incident.
