30-year-old woman and her mother arrested for stealing baby to dupe husband

A 30-year-old woman has been arrested in Bungoma for stealing a three-month-old baby in Nairobi’s Majengo area.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigation detectives based in Busia arrested Nelly Achieng’ Misiani and her 47-year-old mother Grace Akinyi Misiani on Tuesday for stealing a three months old baby in Nairobi.

“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,” said the DCI.

“It has been established that the mother and 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,” they added.

The DCI had been tracing the two ever since they attempted to steal a one-month-old baby boy from a house in Marachhi, Busia County.

“A 27-yr-old woman had at 9 am left her child soundly sleeping at her Marachi house, proceeding to draw water from a nearby borehole. On returning minutes later, she had been thunderstruck to find an empty warm bed, indicating that her baby had just been stolen,” said the DCI.

The child was later found in the house of Nelly’s 21-yr-old brother, Tony Rogers Ochieng’.

“Commencing investigations, detectives searched Tony’s house, therefrom confiscating a blank birth notification certificate and a payment receipt from a fictitious health facility-Comcare County Hospital,” said the DCI.

The rescued child is currently under the care of the Child Protection Unit pending identification and collection by the parents.

Meanwhile, detectives have launched investigations to establish whether a two-yr-old girl living with Nelly & her husband was indeed born to them after her birth certificate from a Busia hospital also appeared suspicious.
