Malawi police in Blantyre are searching for a mother who dumped her 3 month-old baby boy at Kanjedza Seventh Day Church in the city.
Assistant Public Relations Officer for Limbe police Sergeant Widson Nhlane said on 30 April 2016 members of Kanjedza Seventh Day Church gathered together for prayers when the woman dumped her baby a few meters from the church building.
”On 30 April 2016 members of the church were conducting prayers and they saw the unknown woman carrying a baby and they thought she was a member of their church,” said Nhlane.
He added that a moment later the woman vanished but she left the baby a few meters from the church building.
The toddler was taken to Limbe police station and later to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital for check-up.
Meanwhile, Police officers have launched an investigation to find the woman who has done this.
The Police are also appealing to members of the public to report to police anyone suspected to have done this absurd behaviour.
