Monday, May 11, 2020 – A woman who was caught on CCTV stealing a baby in Kisii Bus Terminus over the weekend has been arrested.
Police managed to track and arrest the middle-aged woman after footage of the incident was aired on Citizen TV.
Upon interrogation, the woman said she abducted the seven-month-old baby to save her marriage.
The suspect’s marriage was on the rocks after her young son died and she buried her without the father’s knowledge.
The estranged husband is said to have demanded to see his son before they could reconcile their differences.
According to the mother of the baby, Sheila Nyaboke, she traveled with the suspect in the same vehicle from Nakuru to Kisii.
The suspect was very friendly on their journey and constantly offered to help nurse the toddler.
When they arrived in Kisii, the suspect who was yet to reveal her name and other personal details offered to hold the child as Ms. Nyaboke relieved herself at a public bathroom.
That is when the suspect disappeared with the toddler.
