Baby Dumper Turns Self In


WEDZA: A 20 year-old woman has been arrested after she recently made a report that she had dumped her newly born baby and was being traumatised by the incident.

Mashonaland East provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Norbert Muzondo, said Tsitsi Juru of Mudyanadzo village under Chief Chiduku, gave birth to a baby boy on April 25 this year at Mukamba Clinic.

On the same day, after she was discharged, she dumped her baby in a bushy area near Goto Business Centre and went home.

Cuthbert Nyakudzuku found the newly born baby while passing by and reported the matter at Mukamba Police Station.

The police took the baby to St Mary’s Hospital where it has remained since.

However, Juru turned herself in saying she was psychologically traumatised by the incident and wanted to reunite with her baby.

She is still assisting the police on the matter.
