Police in Mukurweini in Nyeri county arrested two women on child trafficking suspicions after a 53 year old lady claimed to have given birth to a baby who was determined to be four days old.
The woman was said to have lied to her lover that she was pregnant so as to ensure that the man does not leave her claiming the baby would help them become a complete family. Neighbors however reported her to the police after they discovered that she had a baby despite her advanced age.
However, the mother of the baby said she decided to give out her baby to the lady since she had four other children and was finding it hard to feed them. The two ladies had tried to alter the birth certificate of the baby to show that the 53 year old lady was the mother.
They were both remanded at Mukurweini police station as the police continued with investigations.
