Baby who was stolen from Diani dispensary returned to parents

29 April 2015, 15:01 John Kioko

Diani - A four-months-old baby who was stolen from Diani dispensary last week was found Tuesday and handed over to her parents.

She was stolen on Wednesday last week by a woman who was holding her as the mother went to get family planning injection.

Her joyful parents, Esther Moraa and Enock Angwenyi, were joined by neighbors and friends at Diani dispensary where the child was taken for medication after she was found.

The minor is said to have been found with a woman who claimed to have given birth to her some months ago at Ibiza area in Diani, although neighbors did not buy her story.

Neighbors suspected that she had stolen the baby since they had not seen her pregnant.

Enock Angwenyi said that their daughter was found after he gave her photograph to a lady who works with children homes in the area.

“I met a lady at Ibiza market in Diani on Tuesday and explained to her the disappearance of our daughter. She asked me to give her my contacts and her photograph since she already had a suspect," he said.

Some minutes later, he received a call from the good Samaritan who requested him to accompany her to a certain house at Ibiza where the baby was found lying on a bed with the suspect.

After identifying the baby, Angwenyi said they informed police who responded immediately and arrested the suspect, Sangui Mwikali.

“The woman who took me to the house said she had lost her baby to her maid. She has been going round looking for the maid and that's how she found our baby,” he added.

Msambweni OCPD, Joseph Omijah said the suspect will be taken to court after investigations.

Omijah said they are going to dig deeper and unearth the truth behind the matter, as well as to establish if the suspect has been involved in child trafficking business.
