Varsity hostel caretakers conduct random search for pregnant students after infant is found dumped in washroom

A one-day-old infant was rushed to hospital after he was found dumped in a washroom at one of the ladies’ hostels in Moi University, Eldoret.

The infant was discovered abandoned on the floor of Hostel K washroom at 4am Tuesday by students who had visited the facility.

The newborn, which was found wrapped in a hoodie sweater, was still alive; and was rushed to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital for emergency care.

The identity of the infant’s mother is yet to be established.

“Janitors are conducting a random search for students, who were heavily pregnant at the start of January when we resumed studies. Once they narrow down the list of possible suspects, they will forward their names to police for investigations,” said a Moi University student, who was part of the team that bumped into the abandoned baby early Tuesday.

Police say no arrests have been made thus far.
