Women Arrested After Attempting To Steal A Child In Maternity Ward, See How She Was Caught

On Friday, September 25th, 2021, a woman named Elizabeth Musembi was detained after attempting to enter the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) to visit the maternity wing. She was apprehended by security officials who suspected her of attempting to steal a baby.

The woman was questioned by police officers, and she disclosed to the public that she had been weak and desperate for many years after attempting to conceive but failing to do so.

Elizabeth continues, "There was a lady who promised to give her a child after the pregnant period ended and she conceived," but the lady vanished as the due dates approached."

"My aim of going to KNH was not to steal a baby but to look for a baby that has been deserted by a mother,”the woman defended herself.

According to Kilimani OCPD Andrew Muturi, musembi would have kidnapped the baby if the security officers had not raised an alarm.

Elizabeth Musembi is being held at the Kilimani police station pending her arraignment on Monday.
