Police have intensified the hunt for a primary school headteacher in Kenya who threw his five-month-old baby into the fire.
The suspect is purported to have committed the act on Sunday, April 25, in their Baringo’s home, Kenya’s Rift Valley, following the disagreement with his wife over the baby’s paternity.
The wife told the police that her husband accused her of siring the child out of their wedlock.
The local police boss Fredrick Odinga has disclosed that the search for the suspect had been extended to the neighboring regions.
The area residents with the knowledge of the teacher’s whereabouts are urged to report to the police.
“We raided the house alongside … but he was nowhere to be seen. He will run but will not hide for long,” Odinga said.
The baby is treated for burns at a Baringo County Hospital, a local hospital.
