A family in Kericho has been thrown in disarray after their 2-week old baby was reportedly stolen from her mum in Eldoret town.

The baby was allegedly snatched from the mother at Wareng Matatu stage as she was waiting to board a matatu to Kericho.

According to the mother, a woman dressed in a buibui snatched the baby from her and escaped using a bodaboda.

“We appeal to the public, if anyone witnessed or has any information with regards to this case, Please Call Missing Child Kenya on toll free number 0800-22-33-34 or report to the nearest police station,” the statement read in part.
