Police in Nairobi are probing an incident where a maid allegedly kidnapped a baby from Zimmerman estate and asked for Ksh.10,000 ransom. In a text message seen by Citizen Digital, 24-year-old Sharon Chepkoech is reported to have taken the six-year-old girl without the knowledge of the parents. She has allegedly threatened to flee with the baby to Malawi if the money demanded is not paid out to her. The girl, who has since been arrested, was grilled by officers from Kamukunji Police Station before being moved to Kiamumbi in Kiambu. According to Mary Ndiga, the maid was employed two months ago. “She had stolen my clothes and had carried a knife in case the money was not sent she said I will never see my baby,” said Ms Ndiga. A grateful Mary Ndiga told Citizen Digital that she was thankful that her baby was found safe. “I thank God…she kidnapped my first born she was asking to be sent money or else I will never see my baby again, luckily with help of friends and relatives the phone she was using was tracked and she was arrested…” said Ms Ndiga.
