Woman who kidnapped baby at KNH remanded for 5 days

Edna Kerubo Mabuka, the woman accused of abducting a two-week-old baby over the weekend from the Kenyatta National Hospital has been remanded for five days.

Nairobi Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot on Wednesday directed that she be held until Monday, February 26 to enable police conclude investigations.

The court allowed the request by Corporal Emmanuel Kiptoo who said that he needs more time to probe the matter which would take him to Kisii and Bungoma counties.

Magistrate Cheruiyot heard that preliminary investigations so far reveal that Kerubo is involved in a child abduction syndicate.
