The town hosting Harare Mayor Ben Manyenyeni’s office on Friday morning woke up to a sad scene after an unknown lady dumped her new born baby in a dust bin at the offices.

The little innocent soul was discovered by council workers as they arrived at town house for work and fortunately still alive.

The incident was reported to the police who responded swiftly and took the baby into the custody of the department of social welfare who according to Mayor Manyenyeni have agreed to take care of the baby.

Manyenyeni blamed the dumping of the baby as a result of irresponsible fatherhood.

“This is possibly the end result of an irresponsible(or unknown) fatherhood,” said Manyenyeni.
