Police in Mzuzu City are looking for a woman who dumped a baby girl in Professor Peter Mwanza’s forest situated at Kaning’ina in Mzuzu city.
According to Public Relations Officer for Mzuzu Police Station Martin Bwanali, the baby who is suspected to be three weeks old was found on May 1 by Mr Ringo Mbukwa who is a court marshall at Mzuzu High Court.
Mbukwa was going to his plot and while passing through the forest he was surprised to find the well wrapped baby alone in the forest. When he shouted for her mother, no one responded.
He then reported to Police. The reporter and Police officers went to the scene and found the baby still alone. They took the baby to Mzuzu Central Hospital for care and safety.
Meanwhile investigations are underway to trace the mother of the baby.
Bwanali has since asked members of the general public to come forward and report to Police any woman who had a baby but suddenly is not being seen with it.
