Detectives in Mombasa are in search of a woman who allegedly sold her baby to a businesswoman in Mombasa.
Speculations by the detectives on the case are rife that the child was allegedly sold immediately after being born.
According to the People Daily Newspaper, the detectives have managed to arrest five suspects so far, who are part of the network of child traffickers that they had been investigating.
The woman, nonetheless, is still at large and is being sought.
The five who have been arrested include the businesswoman who allegedly bought the baby, the owner of the clinic where the transaction took place, an aid nurse at the clinic, a maid and a driver.
"We intercepted the motor vehicle that was coming from Pwani Medical Clinic within Nyali sub-county,..." Nyali Police Commander Daniel Mumasaba was quoted by the publication.
They conducted the operation after being tipped off there was a syndicate of child traffickers who had just bought a baby.
