'Drama as Woman Is Nabbed And Detained at KNH

Awoman who had faked a pregnancy at Kenyatta National Hospital was yesterday arraigned with an intention to commit a felony.

Elizabeth Syokau Musembi was arraigned before a Milimani court on under miscellaneous application after she was found with a pillow strapped on her belly to look like she was pregnant.

The woman was presented before Senior Principal Magistrate Bernard Ochoi. The police sought five days to detain and take her to Mathari Mental Hospital for assessment before charging her.

Investigating officer Corporal Jackline Makumba of Capital Hill Police Post told the Magistrate in her affidavit that the accused was arrested around 06.34 pm as she was heading to the labour ward at the hospital.

Makumba said she believes Musembi was disguising herself as a pregnant woman with an intention to steal babies at the hospital.

When she was asked by the Magistrate whether she agreed with the investigating officer application to detain her for five days at the Capital Hill police station and take her for mental examination the mother of three whose husband was in court did not object to the application.

The magistrate directed the woman be taken for mental examination within three days.

The case will be mentioned on Wednesday.
