Two Ugandans arrested on suspicion that they stole a child and a vehicle in Nairobi have been detained.

Police said the suspects were waylaid at the Malaba border as they attempted to cross to Uganda.

“Child rescued in stable condition and Mazda Premacy KCG 619W also recovered,” the report from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations reads.

The suspects were driven back to Nairobi and are to arraigned in court this week.

In August this year, a woman believed to have stolen a baby from Nakuru and taken her to the Kenya-Uganda border was arraigned in court.

Police said they were investigating her for child trafficking even as the suspect maintained that she was the mother of the child.

Earlier in June, the Daily Nation reported that a baby ‘stolen’ from Nairobi and taken to Naivasha had died.

The suspect was arraigned as police revealed that she had given them three different accounts of what transpired.

One of the explanations was that she had bought the baby for Ksh. 50,000 in Kawangware.
