In a heart-wrenching development, a rescue mission to retrieve a newly born baby who had been dumped in a blair toilet by the mother failed after the baby died whilst they were retrieving her.

Villagers in Zimbiru in Domboshava were left shell-shocked after they discovered that a newborn baby girl was dumped in the blair toilet by a yet-to-be-identified mother.

The incident came to light after a young boy was about to bath in preparation to go to school heard the baby crying. Shocked after hearing the crying sounds coming from the blair toilet, the boy dashed from the blair toilet and alerted his grandmother.

The boy’s grandmother went to the toilet and also heard the baby crying from the pit. She allegedly notified other villagers who gathered and dug the toilet in order to save the innocent soul that was crying inside.

The villagers managed to retrieve the baby from the blair toilet but sadly it was too late as the baby died whilst they were trying to retrieve her.

Several bruises were discovered around her neck, head, and on her belly. A pit was also discovered around the homestead indicating how the mother tried to cover up the baby using sand.

According to a local tabloid, the corpse was taken by Chinamhora police station.

Cases of baby dumping are quite rampant in Zimbabwe. Recently, a 33-year-old woman from Mutorashanga was arrested and charged with infanticide after she buried her newborn baby alive.

Margaret Musarapasi of Plot 12 Chihamba, Mutorashanga is reported to have given birth to a bouncing baby boy before she allegedly dug a shallow pit in which she buried him alive.
