A 35-year-old woman is being held by police for allegedly attempting to sell off her three weeks old baby, a few hours to her discharge from Nakuru level five hospital. Ann Wangui, a resident of Naishi in Njoro reportedly attempted to sell the child to Dorcas Nanjala at Sh 1,200 to cover costs since the child was born.

The child was to be sold to Nanjala with whom she had been admitted to the hospital but her baby died a few days after delivery.

She was discharged three days later and has been mourning the loss at her home in Rongai. She was however called on Sunday morning by the suspect who disclosed that there was someone who had delivered a baby, a girl like hers, but was not willing to keep her.
