Nakuru - Police in Free Area Estate Nakuru have arrested four women believed to be part of a cartel involved in a child trafficking syndicate.

Two babies aged two and four days were rescued from a house in Kiratina where a woman believed to be a midwife worked as a broker between pregnant mothers and buyers from across the country.

The rescued babies are currently receiving treatment at Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital.
