Taxi operators, passengers and the Police in the New taxi park in Kampala discovered a dead newly born baby girl dropped at one of the dusty bins.

According to Mubarak Wambi, one of chairpersons in the park, they saw one of the police dogs playing around with a green polythene bag, which they thought it contained rubbish.

Wambi said: "When we checked it, we saw a newly-born baby girl.”

Drivers suspect that whoever dropped the child's body did it in the night after Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) workers had finished cleaning.

 
Petu Nabaweesi, a passenger, who was found at the scene, said women should take advantage of available homes that take care of needy children, adding that this will ease the financial worries they get after getting pregnant.

Swalleh Katongole, a driver operating in the park, said it is not the first time they are registering such cases in the park, adding that in May this year, there was a child who was left at the park entrance.

He requested KCCA and the police to monitor rubbish pits in the park to prevent people from dumbing bodies and other harmful things like bombs in them.

Police from Namirembe police post, took the body to the city mortuary Mulago for postmortem as investigations on who dropped the baby continue.
