Baby dumped in plastic bag found

By Dennis Kipkirui

A new-born baby was found dumped in a thicket beside a road hours after birth on Friday afternoon.  The girl child who was inside a nylon bag in Mugiko area along Sipili-Kinamba road was found by two women who were passing by. She was rushed to Sipili Maternity and Nursing Home where it is reported that she received care and is now in stable condition. She will spend few days in the hospital while awaiting her eventual transfer to Nyahururu District Hospital. 

The child is currently in custody of the local provincial administration and the Children's Officer. A man-hunt has been launched to nab the mother of the child.

The incident has attracted condemnation from the local administration and church leaders in equal measure. Church leaders have called on the society to re-think on the core societal values. They pleaded with the residents to avoid habits that jeopardize human life and always acknowledge that life is sacred. In a sermon by Mrs. Catherine Njihia at Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG) Church, she urged the congregation to evaluate themselves and live up to the calling of preserving human life to avoid incidences such as one witnessed in Sipili. Catherine likened the child with the biblical baby Moses who was rescued by an Egyptian lady after her mother hid her in a swamp to avert his death. She said the child is destined to be a great person like Moses.

In another incident, a power blackout has hit a section of Sipili centre. The blackout has brought to a halt operations in one of the busiest sections of the centre. It is alleged that one of the transformers has malfunctioned. They are appalled by the lack of quick response from the giant company. The business community is asking Kenya Power to restore normalcy to allow them continue with their activities.
