Woman who dumped tot immediately after delivery to appear in court

05 November 2013, 17:33 Arap Yego

Mt Elgon - Police in Kaptama, Mt Elgon District, are holding a 24-year-old woman who allegedly gave birth and dumped the baby along a river bank in Kapchebon Village, Chesito sub-Location.

The baby’s lifeless body which was badly devoured by dogs was later found by residents on Tuesday morning.

The woman was accosted by the angry villagers who were baying for her blood. She was luckily whisked away to safety by administration police attached to a nearby camp, saving her from the wrath of the lynch mob.

Kaptama OCS, Justus Njeru, confirmed the incident and said the woman will be taken to court on Wednesday.

“We have the suspect, a 24-year-old woman, in our custody; she will be arraigned in court tomorrow. The body of the child, which was half-eaten by dogs, has been taken to Webuye District Hospital Mortuary for preservation,” the police boss told journalists at Kaptama Police station.
