According to the affected family, the new mother said that the first kid did not cry after delivery and that the baby had difficulty in breathing. She continued to say that the midwives took the child to medical check up but was later informed that the child passed on. However the second child was fine when it was taken away but it turned out to be the same ugly ending when she needed to see her babies.
The family had no choice but to go for DNA check up to see if it was true that her babies were indeed dead. That was when it emerged that the babies that were allegedly dead were not twins and the complainants were not biological parents.
Now the game has shifted from its initial stage to another high profile level. The Pumwani Maternity Hospital has switched the blame to the morgue where the bodies were being kept. The hospital has blamed the morgue attendants of switching the identity of the twins for unknown bodies.
As it is now, the atrocities committed by the hospital staff will never face the law since someone is playing smart in this issue.
This is not the first time that the hospital has been in lime light of over missing new born babies. At one time, the maternity hospital was accused of selling children to unknown ring of human traffickers. But since there was no one to press charges against the popular maternity hospital, the rogue staff posing as qualified midwives survived and my guess is they have started human trade again.
Recently, human trafficking report accused Kenya of being the main route for people who do this business. Now it is evident that some people are taking advantage of this situation to enrich themselves through this illegal business.
