The relatives explained that they became suspicious upon realizing that the pregnancy had disappeared, yet they couldn’t see any baby. The relatives led by two Aunties started a search in which they rescued the baby from a nearby bush but insisted that the mother needed to face the law for her actions.
The boy identified as Mohamad Nkwanga, was today found with fresh injuries on his body and bloodstains on his clothing. He was wandering around, trying to find the route to Kampala by the time a good samaritan picked him and led him to Arua Central Police Station.
The young mother who was found alone with no helper or even baby clothes told one of the midwives to help keep eye on the child as she went to by some soda since she was hungry at a nearby Kiosk but did not return.
