A man in Ogilgei area in Kuresoi North Constituency, Nakuru County, was forced to report his wife to the police station for faking a pregnancy and then buying a baby.
Speaking on a local TV, Wesley Rono, 31, said that he was happy at first after his wife told him that she’s expecting but later on realized that it was a lie.
He however played along to see what his wife would do eventually.
Rono, who has been in the marriage for five years now without a baby, realized his wife had been stuffing clothing to make it look like she’s pregnant.
He says he gave her money to visit clinics whenever she requested despite knowing that she wasn’t pregnant.
“Alikua anasema anaenda checkup Kericho na nilikua nampatia pesa anaenda anarudi. Lakini alikua anaweka nguo kwa tumbo.
“Niligundua lakini nikasema wacha nitulie tuu mpaka nione amepanga nini juu ningemwambia angehepa (She used to say she is going for pregnancy check-up in Kericho. I gave her money every time she needed it. I discovered that she was stashing clothes on her stomach but chose to play along like a fool to see the end motive),” Rono said.
After nine months and time to give birth, Patricia asked for money to go and deliver at Kericho Hospital on August 8.
Just hours after being given the money, she then told her husband that she had delivered a bouncing baby boy.
She went home with the baby four days later.
“Siku ya nne kufika kwa nyumba jioni nikampata. Nikamwangalia na kumuuliza huyu mtoto ni wa siku nne kweli? Nikaambia bibi yangu unajua hii ni police case? (After four days, I came home in the evening and found her with a child.
“I questioned her whether the child was born recently as she claimed. I faced her and asked whether she knew what she had done is a criminal offence),” Rono narrated.
The husband says his wife was breastfeeding the child with cow milk, a clear indicator that she had not given birth.
After further interrogation, she accepted that she had bought the child and that is when Rono called the police.
Patricia confessed that she bought the child from another woman for Ksh 2650 plus tea seedlings.
The woman at first wanted Ksh 50,000 but they exchanged with tea seedlings worth the amount.
According to police, the woman is a wanted criminal and a serial child trafficker believed to be currently hiding in Kisii.
