Judith is aged 47 years old while Florence is 62. The two ladies have been charged with child trafficking and may be sentenced to a 30-year long jail term or a fine worth ksh 30 million.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the two ladies had pleaded to be guilty. However, they changed their statements later on after getting a lawyer.

Judith's husband said that he was surprised after finding his wife with a toddler. He told the media that he was not aware that his wife was pregnant and was dumbfounded after finding her with a toddler yet she never breastfed him.

Several DNA tests were also done and disproved Judith being the mothet of the toddler.
