Woman arrested for abandoning 3 week old infant


A woman in Soweto, Kayole area has been arrested for abandoning her 24 day old infant.

Lucy Gacheru a volunteer children’s officer in Soweto says the 24 day old infant was found abandoned by the neighbours who later raised an alarm with the police.

According to Gacheru, the woman has been saying how she did not want the infant, dumped it and moved to Landi Mawe near the CBD.

Gacheru says cases of child abandonment have been on the rise in the area due to high rate of alcohol consumption by women in the area.
