Alice Mokaya alongside four abettors were brought before magistrate Steven Jalang’o on Monday. Other culprits were; Gladys Chepkemoi, Jacinta Mueni, Teresia Mutuku and Rose Wayua.

The investigation officer Beth Kamande will go to Mama Lucy hospital to get required papers and report to the registrar of births and deaths to verify information.

Kamande stated that the suspects might meddle investigations if released on bail adding that the complainant had been cautioned by the suspects’ family.

When the time to deliver came, Mokaya took her to the hospital to deliver and blackmailed her only to go into hiding with her child. The suspect later gave the complainant Sh. 1500 and sold the baby at Sh. 25,000.
