A one-year-old baby girl who had been stolen from her home in Funyula, Western Kenya, has finally been found and reunited with her biological mother.
Baby Gladwel Zawadi was rescued after a three-day meticulous operation, and the suspect, identified as Electine Obonyo, was placed behind bars.
“ZawadI was finally reunited with her mother Anne Nanjumbia, who sobbed uncontrollably at the sight of her baby,” said DCI.
Baby Zawadi was stolen from the doorsteps of their house on November 16, as her nanny went about the daily house chores.
She was busy doing laundry a few steps from the house when she turned back to find the baby missing.
When the missing baby’s report was received at Funyula police station, detectives backed up by general duty police officers immediately embarked on a mission to trace baby Zawadi and bring her back home.
The squad followed the culprit down for three days, following clues offered by witnesses, before ultimately apprehending her on Thursday evening.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
