JOHANNESBURG: The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) on Monday condemned the dumping of babies, saying it has become a growing social problem in South Africa.

The party in a statement said: “We are concerned about this tendency of dumping newly-born babies by some women which have almost become a daily occurrence. We appeal to the police to come up with stringent measures to deter would-be offenders. Women need to be responsible and not take actions like throwing away babies who might have had a bright future ahead.”

This comes after a baby girl was found and rescued from a drain pipe in Durban.
