It is shocking but the woman suspected of stealing the baby from KNH was planning to sell the infant for Ksh 7000
In an exclusive interview with the Nation,the woman who identified herself as Faith kwamboka said that she already had a client to sell the infant by the name of Jennifer.
The 29 year old said that she was handed the baby by the cousin to the infants father before she was “tricked”by Jenniffer to disappear with the baby to the neighborhoods of Kawangware.
Faith who is a trader at Keroka in Kisii escaped with the baby in her arms as captured by the CCTV cameras.
“I had gone to the hospital for a check-up because I developed complications after giving birth to my baby, who died in February last year,” Ms Kemunto said.
Upon getting outside the hospital,Faith said she handed the baby to Jennifer before the two left to Jennifer’s house in kongo are of Kawangware.
“After I returned to my house, I realized that I had done a mistake and I went back to Jennifer’s house to try and convince her that we should return the baby,” she told the Nation.
“I told her that, even though we had agreed that she was going to pay me, I was not happy about what we had done.”
She took the baby on Monday and was planning to return her to KNH on Tuesday morning.The infant was surving on infant formula.
On Tuesday morning as she was cleaning the baby,she was arrested by the police.
The police got a tip from a caller in Kawangware who told them where the baby was.Kwamboka tried to call jennifer but her phone was off.
Its not the first time such cases of babies disappearing in hospitals even when they are under security and the suspects are never arrested.
Just last month KNH was faced with an allegation of sexual harassment of mothers inside the facility.
