“The two; 47-yr-old Grace Akinyi Misiani and Nelly Achieng’ Misiani, 30 were wanted in connection to a February 15 incident where another one-month-old infant was stolen from Marachi estate of Busia, only to be found at the house of the 1st suspect’s 21-yr-old son, Tony Rogers Ochieng.
Investigations into the matter revealed that Nelly, a health worker in Busia had terminated her husband’s 4-month fetus before they began a quest with her mother to act like she was about to deliver.
The two pressured the husband to send money before escaping with the baby and getting arrested in Bungoma.
“Probing into the case, detectives established that the 2nd suspect (Nelly), a KMTC student in Bungoma, & who is married to a health worker at a Busia hospital, had months before terminated a 4~months pregnancy, but had let the husband believe he would soon be a father.
With the help of her mother & brother, the trio had stolen the baby boy in the first instance that backfired, before embarking on yet another child theft in Majengo-Nairobi.
It has been established that the mother & daughter had been putting pressure on Nelly’s husband to send money to clear her “hospital bill” after a safe delivery, thus requiring proof to convince him.” Said DCI
