Nakuru woman in attempt to sell baby at Sh1,200 charged with child trafficking

Published

A Nakuru woman who attempted to sell her three-weeks-old baby at Sh1,200 has pleaded guilty of child trafficking.

Ann Wangui, a 35-year-old mother of seven, was arrested at the Nakuru Level Five Hospital on Tuesday.

She admitted to planning to sell the baby girl to another woman who hails from Rongai immediately after she was discharged from the facility.

“I wanted to sell the girl to recover the money I had used to buy diapers used when she was in the incubator for three weeks,” she told the court.

Wangui, who hails from Njoro, had her baby put in the nursery since she was underweight and was due for discharge on Wednesday afternoon.

She wanted to sell the baby to Dorcas Nanjala, who was also admitted to the hospital. The latter’s baby died a few days after delivery.

The suspect asked Nanjala for Sh1,200 in exchange for the baby and further directed her to come with clothes for the little girl.

Nanjala was directed to arrive at the hospital gate at exactly 11am where the deal was to be sealed.

The buyer first reported the proposed deal to Nakuru Central police station and was escorted by plainclothes officers to the hospital.

Wangui walked into the nursery and after few minutes, emerged holding the child. The detectives pounced on her.

Her husband Wilson Mungai arrived minutes later while armed with an assortment of baby clothes ready to walk home with his newborn.

Mungai expressed his shock after learning that his wife had planned to give away their child without informing him.

“My wife called me in the morning saying she would be discharged today and that is why I am here for them,” Mungai said.

Michelle reveals boyfriends she had before Obama, details of her first kiss ever

Published

on

In her new memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama not only talks about her public role and her family but also delves into her love life revealing, for instance, the first time she had a kiss as a teenager.

“I arranged my first kiss, in fact, over the phone,” she writes.

“It was with a boy named Ronnell. Ronnell didn’t go to my school or live in my immediate neighbourhood, but he sang in the Chicago Children’s Choir.”

At the time, Michelle would observe how other girls her age were changing due to the onset of adolescence and how the rush of hormones made her accompany her friends to watch boys play. To increase her chances of being noticed, she would often tag one of her popular friends along.

“Being around boys, I was slowly coming to realise, was fun,” she writes in the book that comes out this week and for which she and her husband, former US President Barack Obama, were paid a joint advance fee of $65 million (Sh6.5 billion).

In her gap year, she worked in a bookbindery, where she met another prospective boyfriend, David.

And when it was time for her to join Princeton University, David and her father drove her all the way to the campus.

However, she says that even by then, she had made up her mind to move on.

“David was easy-going and also more of an adult than any boyfriend I’d had. He sat on the couch and watched ball games with my father. He joked around with Craig and made polite conversations with my mom… We fooled around and smoked pot in his car…”

MEETING OBAMA

Once in Princeton, a new vista opened up for Michelle and, in time, she met another boyfriend, Kevin, a football player but it did not work out.

He eventually became a doctor and married a college mate of Michelle’s.

She, too, graduated with a law degree and joined a prestigious law firm in Chicago, Sidley & Austin, and that was where one of the senior partners asked her if she would be willing to mentor one of the young lawyers, known as summer associates, that the company was grooming.

“Of course you will,” she writes. “You have yet to understand the altering force of a simple yes … Next to your name is another name, that of some hotshot law student who’s busy climbing his own ladder. Like you, he’s black and from Harvard. Other than that, you know nothing — just the name, and it’s an odd one.”

And that is how she met Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan student.

Obama would later become the 44th US President before handing over power to Donald Trump.

Michelle has made it clear that there is no love lost between her and President Trump.

Maribe, who is battling murder charges in related to the gruesome murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani, is currently out on bail after spending five weeks in custody.

Understandably, the journalist has opted to maintain a low profile since she secured temporary freedom amid strict warnings from the court on what she should and shouldn’t do.

Her fiancé Joe Irungu alias Jowie who is the main suspect in the murder case remains in custody having been denied bail.
