Nakuru - Just two days after the saga in which a woman buried her two-day old baby alive in Rongai sub-County, a man has come out and united with him and accused his wife of attempted murder.
Vincent Cheruiyot, a casual labourer at Lomolo Sisal Company in Rongai Constituency, re-united with his one-week-old boy at Nakuru’s Nairobi Women Hospital where he expressed gratitude to God for saving his son.
The 36-year-old man broke his silence over the heinous act of his wife, alleging that she has a history of neglecting children.
“I am relieved to unite with my angel Flavour Bahati. This marks the end of my relationship and marriage with my wife because her act betrayed her and she cannot be trusted or relied upon,” he said.

Angela Gwaro, a nurse at the Nairobi Women Hospital in Nakuru says the baby is out of danger and continues to grow healthy and strong.
“He is doing great and we gave him a name Flavour Bahati for escaping death while he was two days old after he was buried. He will be taken to a children’s home in two days time,” Angela said.
Cuddling his son, Cheruiyot proclaimed that Bahati will grow to a prominent person.
He said her wife, 36-year-old Christine Auma, has nine children who are in various children’s home in Nakuru.
“In my heart, there is no room for her as I cannot even think of forgiving. She neglected her five children after the husband died and they were rescued and housed in children’s home. She is heartless,” He added.
According to Cheruiyot, his wife started complaining of headache and stomachache on Sunday last week.
“It is alleged she delivered the baby at home after I left for work in Subukia and then secretly made her way to the nearby bush where she buried the baby alive,” he narrated.
