Police in Nairobi’s Mukuru Kwa Reuben are hunting for woman who delivered a baby boy and attempted to kill it by strangling him using strong rope.
The baby was collected yesterday by good Samaritan and rushed for treatment at Mukuru Kwa Reuben Maternity but he was transferred to Mama Lucy Kibaki for specialized treatment.
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has condemned the act in lengthy post below with Sh100, 000 reward to anyone with information that will help police arrest the woman.
“I know it’s very wrong to post such photos on social media but I have been saddened by a woman who delivered a bouncing baby boy and abandoned him after tying the baby with a tight rope on the neck, maybe trying to hang strangle him to die.
Luckily the baby was rescued by a Good Samaritan and rushed to Mukuru kwa Reuben Maternity Hospital where the rope on the neck was removed and some first aid done on him.
But since the condition of the baby is not very good, he has been transferred to Mama Lucy Hospital where doctors are trying to save his life.
The matter has been reported at Mukuru kwa Reuben Police Post Vide OB No. 32/9/3/2019. I strongly condemn this inhumane act and I’m offering a reward of Sh100, 000 to anyone who will give information that will help the police get the person behind this heinous act.
I wish instead of doing this to an innocent angel the mother had come reached out to well-wishers for help in raising him. Let’s pray for the baby to survive and lives to achieve the purpose for which God created him”.
