Kenyan Woman who Stole a Young Baby Forced to Return Him After the Baby Reportedly Tortured Her

A man and a woman in Siaya County have been to hell and back over the last three months after the couple lost their youngest son in unfortunate circumstances at a Siaya based hospital.

Mary Akinyi narrates that together with her infant, she had taken her two year old daughter for treatment at Gem hospital when a stranger who appeared to be in distress approached her and requested for help to get her treatment card.

She left her two children with the stranger to go and get her a treatment card as she requested but when she came back, she was shocked to find that the woman had Vanished with her toddler son as the 2-year old daughter cried uncontrollably. When asked where her brother was, she pointed at the gate and just like that, Akinyi had lost her son.

However, things took a dramatic turn as The Standard reports that the woman who had stolen the young male baby was forced to return the baby in dramatic circumstances.

She approached a local church and reported that the baby was disturbing her.

"The baby boy was found after a woman suspected to have stolen him sought help from a church on grounds that he was torturing her," the report read.

This prompted the church members to alert authorities who moved in and transferred the baby to a local children's home as police looked for the parents who promptly came to pick their baby.
