LISTEN | Infant freed from shallow grave after church steward alerted by muted cries

When Methodist Church steward Mbuyiselo Manyonga set off to find the source of the muffled cries he heard while preparing for Sunday service, he thought there was a cat in distress.

However, what he found buried in a shallow grave inside an incomplete building next to the church was not someone’s pet, but a newborn baby boy.

The baby boy, found with his umbilical cord still attached, is in a stable condition at Indwe Hospital. His mother is still not known.

Daron Mann speaks with Provincial Health spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo in this episode, and provides us with an update.
