BBC Africa journalist Larry Madowo on Monday moved to help a man who pleaded guilty to "smuggling" a baby out of the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).

In a post on his verified Twitter handle, Larry relayed that he had been able to get a lawyer to represent the accused man.

The lawyer, Charles Liewa Madowo who is a partner at the HMS Advocates firm agreed to take up the matter at no cost to the accused man (pro bono).

Boniface Murage smuggled his daughter out of KNH in a bag

Boniface Murage, 22, on Monday admitted that he attempted to carry his daughter out of KNH in a paper bag to avoid paying Sh56,937 owed to the hospital.

Appearing before Resident Magistrate Muthoni Nzibe, Murage told the court that he attempted to escape with the baby because he did not have the funds required to settle the debt.

The Magistrate ruled to have Murage remanded until Tuesday when the court will hear the charges preferred against him by the prosecution, after which he will be sentenced.
