It is said that the man argued with a woman she has been in a marriage with for 19 years, he says he suspects that the child might not be his and that's why he took the initiative of burning the baby. The baby whose state is not stable is currently at Baringo County Hospital with severe burns.
The child's mother says that she was chased away from her matrimonial home the moment she gave birth to the child, this forced her to seek refuge at an external kitchen where her husband attacked her.
The situation took place when the woman went to take utensils from the main house so that she could serve her husband, but as she was doing this, she heard her baby cry, this prompted her to run back to the kitchen only to find her baby in fire and her husband holding a panga.
She struggled to rescue the child and later reported the matter to the area assistant chief, who ordered the man to ensure that the child is treated.
The officer in the children's department reported the matter to the police who are on the ground to ensure that the minor gets justice.
