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.
