Mathare residents on Thursday discovered a body of a newborn baby next to the Mathare Chief’s camp.
Eye witnesses say the body was discovered at around 6 am in the morning by people going to work.
Those who spoke to Ghetto Radio News say that they are not sure as to who dumped the body but they suspect that it is a resident from the surrounding slum.
Administration officers in the area however took their time before collecting the body and taking it to the mortuary despite receiving timely reports from the residents.
“I have seen Mathare Ward adminstrator pass by, he took a picture of the baby and left without taking any action’’ said one resident.
The area residents are however calling upon the government to take action and move the body from the place.
