The body of a newborn was found abandoned in a garbage dump in Tassia, Nairobi's Embakasi estate, on Tuesday evening.
The baby's body had been wrapped in garments and placed inside a carton discovered at a landfill.
A beggar who scavenges boxes and other goods from dumps to sell made the discovery.
It is alleged the carton was dropped in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
Whether the baby died before he was dropped next to the landfill or before remains a mystery. Investigations are ongoing.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
