Editorial: They are too precious to be dumped

New born babies are so precious that they can not be dumped; mothers who choose to dump there own babies after birth are not worth being called mothers.

New born babies are so precious that they can not be dumped; mothers who choose to dump there own babies after birth are not worth being called mothers.

Last week, the New Times newspaper run a story of a mother who dumped her newly born baby in a latrine of 30meters.

This is unfair and embarrassing; killing a child is an unforgivable crime. Children have the right to grow into adults until the natural death takes them back to its creator.

Mothers who keep on dumping their own children should be punished severely. Serious measures should be put forward to stop such reckless actions in the Rwandan community.

Every one in the society should guard the young generation by reporting cases of parents who abuse their own children in any kind of manner.

Reporting cases of parents dumping their own children either on the way, in hospitals, latrines or after birth, will help to stop the act.

Children are the future leaders, a strong pillar on which Rwanda as a nation will be standing. Save the nation by protecting its precious children.
