Kenya: 'Female' Suspect Detained At a Women's Prison Turns Out to Be Male

Nairobi — A suspect who had been arraigned for impersonating to be a nurse and remanded at the Eldoret Women Prison, has turned out to be a man.

The 26-year-old suspect, according to police, was arrested over the weekend at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

Ironically, his passport and the National Identity card bear the names of a lady.

It was only Tuesday morning that the suspect revealed he was a man.

"The suspect was critically checked and found to have a male organ," reads a police report seen by Capital FM News.

He is currently being held at Eldoret Police Station.
