Residents of Masala township in Ndola, Zambia are in shock after a three year old baby was discovered in a two roomed house next to its dead mother’s body which was in a decomposed state.

The baby is believed to have spent some days with the decomposed body, identified by police as Mirriam Siliya before she was discovered by a passer by on Sunday who noticed a child pulling at the curtains of the house.

Police said Ms. Siliya’s body was found lying face-down with vomit on the floor and in a bucket.
