Johannesburg - A baby girl has been found abandoned in Zondi, Soweto, Gauteng police said on Saturday.

"At around 16:30 we received a call from Zondi and the police went to the place and found a child which was abandoned at the back of a new building wrapped in a plastic bag," said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

The baby was still alive and taken to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital for examination, he said.

"We don't know where the mother of the child is and ask for the community, if they have any information, to go to Jabulani station," said Makhubela.

The baby's age was unknown.

    whats wrong with us(mothers).is a pain good enough to dump a baby?we are really heartless man.

  • sandy.langenstrass - 2012-07-22 14:34

    Abandoning a new born baby is murder !!! This mother (if found) should get the maximum jail sentence....if you can leave your own innocent baby to die,you are a heartless individual....I don't care if some will say....'but she couldn't afford to keep the baby'.."THEN DON'T BL**DY GET PREGNANT"..NO EXCUSES...GO ON THE PILL...DON'T HAVE BABIES IF YOU CAN NOT AFFORD THEM.

    Reptile. These parents of this child should be sterilized! I am sorry but as much as I empathise with young mothers, there is NO excuse to abandon your child. You are nothing but a spineless heartless freaking dog. Or wait, dogs dont even do that. May you burn in hell.

      - Excellent question! Everyone always forgets about the male in the equation.

      sandy.langenstrass - 2012-07-22 20:39

      Enid....she probably doesn't know who the father is.....GIRLS KEEP YOUR LEGS CROSSED...until the man marries you....this country doesn't need any more unwanted babies..

      Eunice, I cannot read what you have said, but it looks like you assume this was a consensual act. What if the mother was raped? I don't condone the dumping if a precious baby, but can imagine how difficult it must be to bond with a child that has been conceived in that way ...

      Bless ~ Than you give it to an adoption agency, not a rubbish bin!

    Time to start the control of births in this country, and for any woman under the age of 25 and unmarried and has a child she does not want then sterilize her and her various partners. there should be a law against the amount of children one should have. 2 per family and no grants.

      manny.dasilva.334 - 2012-07-22 17:47

      Carolyn, where do you live? Hello....this is South Africa and just look at the example JZ is setting, anyway, we WANT more babies so that we can ask others to feed them. It is going to be difficult tracing the partners...? Prof JZ has joined the Chinese ways, and just look at their numbers...ha ha ha

      kimsaiyanprincess.murison - 2012-07-22 19:28

      - You need some kind of intelligence, ambition and a goal further than breeding and scraping by on grants.

  • Wayne Klasen - 2012-07-22 20:01

    Bles! What if she was raped. The Child no matter what does not deserve to be abandoned.

  • Mohamed Raeez Allie - 2012-07-22 22:08

    may God forgive us all!

  • carol.jooste.1 - 2012-07-23 11:48

  • KingPun - 2013-05-13 16:48
