A 25-year-old Kenyan woman identified as Faith Nyokabi, was on Tuesday arrested in Thika town, Kenya for allegedly refusing to breastfeed her baby unless she was paid by her husband.
Nyokabi reportedly abandoned her four-month-old baby at her matrimonial home in Kiganjo Estate over a week ago and refused to return without receiving Ksh.100,000 ($995) in cash from her husband, Charles Kiiri.
According to her husband who is only a casual laborer, his wife had taken off and left their infant in the house.
The woman has been found and will be charged with child neglect and denying a child protection and care contrary to the Children’s Act of Kenya.
