Baringo Woman Abducts Her 12-year-old Daughter After Abandoning Her With The Father at Birth

A woman named WJ is being tracked by detectives after she abducted her 12-year-old daughter who she abandoned while in infancy. The order was given by a magistrate court in Baringo.

In a case filed by the father, christened EK, the court was told that the woman kidnapped the child while in the company of other children heading to school at around 6.30 am on August 2.

The distraught father told Resident Magistrate Vienna Amboko that the kid was barely two weeks when the mother abandoned her. The girl's father wondered why she decided to turn up 12 years to claim the custody of the girl.

In her ruling, Magistrate Amboko ordered Baringo Central Police Station to liaise with Directorate and Criminal Investigations (DCI) to track the woman together with the kid and present them before the court on Monday.

"I have been taking care of the child since her mother disappeared. I have single-handedly brought her up, paying her school fees and catering for all her needs including food as she stayed at my parents' home. Her mother had never shown any interest in her until now," EK said as quoted by Standard Media.
