A woman and her daughter suspected to have stolen a three-month-old baby at Nairobi’s Majengo estate were on Tuesday arrested in Bungoma, after days of being trailed from Nairobi by Busia-based detectives.
The two were wanted in connection with a February 15 incident where another one-month-old infant was stolen from Marachi estate of Busia
. The baby was later found in the house of the mother’s 21-year-old son in the area.

According to police, in the latter incident, a 27-year-old woman had at 9am left her child sleeping at her Marachi house, proceeding to draw water from a nearby borehole.

With the help of her mother and younger brother, the trio had stolen the baby boy in the first instance that tripped, before embarking on yet another child theft in Majengo-Nairobi.

Detectives handling the case later established the woman’s daughter, who is student at the Kenya Medical Training College in Bungoma, and who is married to a health worker at a Busia hospital, had months before terminated a four-month pregnancy, but had led the husband believe he would soon be a father.

The suspects had successfully escaped with the child to Bungoma, stepping into the detectives’ snare.

Police suspect the incident is part of a wider syndicate on child trafficking and sexual abuse and exploitation.
