Voi,KENYA:A one old day baby who was stolen at Moi referral Hospital in Voi on Wednesday has been found and reunited with the mother.

The Hospital superintendent Kagina Gitau said the baby was found Wednesday evening with another woman who claimed she had delivered in the same hospital.

The victim, Jane Mueni’s daughter is said to have been stolen by a woman who was admitted to the hospital.

However, according to Gitau, preliminary investigations established that the woman was lying.

Gitau said the baby had been taken several kilometers away from the hospital in Mwakingali area.

 “It took the immediate action from police and the hospital to trace the baby. Eventually we found her at Mwakingali area and later reunited her with the mother’, said Gitau.

The suspect is being held at Voi police station awaiting interrogation.
