A child who was born with facial deformities on Sunday, August 27, reportedly died of starvation after her mother refused to breastfeed her sayingshe was a bad omen.

The innocent child was allegedly starved for over 10 hours by her mother,who left her to die.The 22-year-old mother was ashamed and frightened to hold her baby and even accord her motherly love.

Residents, including religious leaders trooped to the home upon hearing of the deformed child not to pray for the dejected and rejected baby but to have a look at her.”She frightened me. I have never seen such a human being,” the mother, Mariam Mwakombo, told Nairobi News.

Mwakombo and her family buried the infant at their home after watching her starve to death without even seeking….
