Jouberton – Sewer contractors made a gruesome discovery when unblocking one of the pipelines of a main haul in Ext 10 West on Tuesday 10 June 2020.
The employees of “Water Engineering” company discovered an “infant baby” on a main haul while on duty, the baby looked to be in it’s developing stages.

The unpleasant discovery left the men in complete shock!, they stopped working and immediately informed a personnel from the municipality, Ward 05 councillor “Letlhogonolo Daniel Molefi” and the SAPS were already on the scene when we arrived.
