The boy’s mother, Maureen Nyaboke, was also arrested and arraigned in court for child neglect.

Several suspects, including a Form Three student, a middle-aged man, and a woman, were apprehended on Sunday evening and released.

Jumwa said that the government would shelter the minor alongside his sister in a safe house as he recovers from the ordeal.

This came after the doctors at Kisii Eye Hospital said he was ready to be discharged but could not release him back to his family due to the highly volatile situation.

Kisii Governor Simba Arati commended the CS for helping the baby who is said to be the subject of a victim of peculiar rituals meted out by relatives.

"I am happy the CS has offered to help us in regard with the safe house solution. The children will be safer there," Arati said.
