A KCPE student in Migori may do her exams in police custody after being arrested for selling her two-weeks old baby for Sh5,000.
Edith Auma, 19, a student at Aroso Primary School is being held at Migori Police Station after allegedly selling her son to a woman (name withheld) from Sori town, in Nyatike. Auma ran away from home and went to live in Migori town.
A lady running a salon business in Migori brokered the deal between Auma and the buyer. Police boss Alfred Makoma said Auma was asked by her neighbours where was the baby. Auma, instead took them to the salonist.
The salonist acted as the go between the Auma and the buyer who according to the salonist is barren. Makoma said three women will be taken to court.
