Sleuths Re-unite Stolen Infant With Her Mother


Detectives based in Thika West DCI offices in Kiambu County have rescued a newborn baby girl who had been stolen and reunited her with her mother.
Dorcas Kivuva (the mother) from Githurai, had just been discharged from Thika Level five hospital after being blessed with a beautiful baby girl, and was having a meal at a nearby hotel before heading home.
While at the hotel, a woman seated next to her introduced herself as Betty and struck up a conversation with her, marveling at the little beautiful angel and thanking God for such a fulfilling miracle.
Unbeknownst to the mother, the woman who engaged her in a lengthy conversation about the joys of motherhood was attempting to gain her trust by invoking God and His goodness.
As they talked, the woman offered to help her with babysitting, but as soon as Kivuva handed her the child, she mysteriously vanished.
This prompted the new mother to rush to the Thika police station and report her child’s disappearance.
Detectives swung into action right away, employing cutting-edge forensic technology to identify the suspect. The suspect was apprehended 24 hours later in Kambiti, Murang’a county, where she had gone into hiding at an elderly woman’s home.
Detectives from the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit believe the suspect is part of a larger syndicate of child traffickers who target women who have recently given birth at local hospitals.
The 36-year-old suspect Joyce Wamaitha is in police custody and is currently going through legal procedures in preparation for her arraignment in a court of law.
