Woman denies stealing a baby, released on 1m bond

Amina Juma Masha, accused of stealing a baby at Mombasa Hospital denied the charges before Magistrate Rita Amwayi.

The 21-year-old was released on a Ksh 1 million bond with a surety of the same amount. According to the charges, Ms Juma Masha intentionally took baby Brown Njuguna from his Mother, Victoria Zubeida shortly after being discharged from Mombasa Hospital.

The incidence is dated January 7 in Jomvu Constituency. The accused was arrested the same day.

The complaint, Ms Zubeida Victoria, 25, said she went to collect drugs from the hospital and left the baby in the suspect’s hands.

“I found her in the maternity ward. She heard all the conversations I had with the nurse,” Zubeida said.

Zubeida added that the suspect offered to help her carry the baby after being discharged but later reminded her of the drugs she had forgotten.

“When I was discharged, she offered to help me with the baby. On reaching the Kijiweni matatu stage, she reminded me about the drugs I had left at the facility, so I left her with the baby,” Ms Zubeida said.
