Woman beaten to a pulp by her community after she dumped her baby’s body in the bush

A harrowing incident has rocked the Eastern Cape community after a woman was arrested following the discovery of her baby’s body in the bushes.

The 27-year-old woman, who hails from the village of Socishiba, was taken into police custody after the gruesome discovery was made on Monday.

But she was physically assaulted by members of the community before police escorted her away.

According to police spokesperson Captain Lariane Jonker, the baby, believed to be just a few months old, was found wrapped in a blanket in the bushes near the village.

The discovery was made by a passerby who immediately alerted the authorities.

The heartbreaking incident has left the community in shock and disbelief.

Many residents have expressed their outrage and sadness over the tragic fate of the innocent baby.

Some have called for justice to be served while others have offered their support to the family of the deceased child.

The circumstances surrounding the baby’s death remain unclear, and an investigation is ongoing.

The woman is expected to appear in court soon, where she will face charges related to the death of her child.

Cases of infanticide are always deeply distressing and can have a profound impact on communities.

The loss of a young life in such a manner is a stark reminder of the vulnerability of children and the need for support systems to protect them.
