Two women accused of stealing the risk of infants being slapped for up to 30 years in prison following their October 15 arrest by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI)
In a DCI statement, the two, Judith Ingahitzu, 47, and her aunt Florence Musimbi Abulu, 62, allegedly played Good Samaritans before stealing a baby and changing the details of a birth certificate while the baby’s mother was fighting for her life. in the work ward.
This was reported by an inquisitive member of the public who said no woman was seen with a baby who was found to be pregnant.
Detectives would then begin a search for truth in the Matete area of Kakamega where they found the first suspect.
Judith was reportedly found shaking her “her” package of happiness and could not bear her intervening questions which caused her husband to engage them.
“The mother of four older children could not bear the presence of her unwelcome guests, but her husband, who had no children with her at the time of their marriage, urged the detective to rely on the case,” we can read in the press release.
The husband came out and spilled the beans saying that he did not know about his wife’s pregnancy until he was found holding a one-day baby who would not breastfeed.
In addition, Judith’s birth certificate had been amended using a white curtain and the parents’ names were handwritten.
Judith, however, denied and insisted that she was pregnant, a situation that led the detective to request a medical examination that appeared to be serious.
They also conducted a DNA test at another Kisumu hospital, which also contradicted the suspect’s allegations.
It was during this time that Judith opened an investigation and revealed the second suspect, her aunt who lived in Kikuya village in Vihiga.
It turned out that Florence was behind it all when she followed a 17-year-old pregnant girl living with her grandmother.
He approached her with a job offer as a housemaid in Nairobi, which the young helpless child accepted and was later linked to her employer who was living in Ongata Rongai in Kajiado.
Florence warned the girl not to reveal to any of her relatives that she was pregnant, before ordering the girl’s employer to release the girl as soon as she was due.
Admittedly, the orphaned girl had been taken by Florence 10 days before her date of birth, who stayed with her for the period before taking her to Vihiga Health Center on September 8 where Judith appeared, waiting until she gave birth. It was in the process of returning documents on behalf of the new mother that Judith, who had decided to steal the child, changed the document before the child disappeared ”, we can read in the statement to the press.
The new mother reunited with her son while the two women awaited the decision.
Meanwhile, investigators are also conducting another investigation into finding the man behind the girl’s pregnancy.
