A 25-year-old woman was Tuesday charged in a Kitui court with selling her three-day-old infant for Sh10,000.

Sarahi Kwamboka was arraigned before Kitui resident magistrate Johnstone Munguti facing child trafficking charges.

The suspect, a single mother of three, was charged alongside the child alleged buyer, Bernadette Musanya.

The first accused, the court was told, gave birth to a girl named Fridah Mutheu at Kanyangi health centre in Kitui rural constituency on December 29 and sold it to Ms Musanya.

According to the charge sheet, she committed the offence three days later on New Year’s day.

KITUI GK PRISON

Both suspects were arrested by police on January 3 where the new born was rescued from the buyer, as she planned to flee to the neighbouring Machakos County.

The two pleaded guilty to the charges and were remanded at Kitui GK prison awaiting report on the custody of the new born from the children’s department before a ruling is made.

Ms Kwamboka told the court that she sold the child out of desperation because she could not afford to raise her alongside her two other children.

Her neighbours at Kanyangi where she survives by doing casual laundry work raised the alarm and reported the missing child to police, after they failed to see her breastfeed.

The case will be heard on January 18.
