The police have arrested four more medical officers who are involved in child- trafficking after the BBC Africa exposed the alleged theft and sale of babies.
The deputy director of medical services at the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) is among the four people in the police custody.
The others who got arrested with the NMS deputy director include; an administrator, a nurse and a social worker who appeared in court on 19th Thursday, adding to the three senior medical officials who were in court on Wednesday.
The Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Benard Ochoi allowed the police to hold the seven suspects for two days to enable detectives to complete their investigations.
The investigating officer Chief Inspector Wanga Masake was directed by the magistrate to visit the hospital and collect the documentary evidence relevant to the investigations. He is to be accompanied by Dr. Mutio and Dr. Musembi.
The investigation also revealed alleged corruption at Mama Lucy Kibaki, a public hospital in Nairobi.
According to the prosecution, the alleged theft of babies at the hospital happened when Dr. Musa Mohammed Ramadhan, who is detained at Kilimani Police Station pending the conclusion of investigations, was in charge of the facility.
At a press conference on Tuesday 17th , Minister for Labour and Social Protection Simon Chelugui said the culprits would face the full force of the law.
