Police arrest two doctors suspected of conducting abortions in Nairobi
Detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Friday arrested two doctors suspected of conducting abortions at a facility along Murang’a Road. The two; Dr Mwaura Karumbi and Dr John Marore, were arrested at Prestige Health Point Medical Center along Murang’a Road, Nairobi, by officers based at Pangani.
According to a tweet by the DCI, two other suspects were also arrested and 10 decomposing fetuses were found. “The two, together with Christopher Mwangi, Erick Mwenda and Judith Anyanzwa were arrested on suspicion that they were conducting abortion in the said facility where 10 decomposing fetuses and other appliances suspected have been used for conducting abortion were recovered,” read the tweet in part.
A lady suspected to have procured abortion was also found admitted in the facility which had no operating licenses. The recovered fetuses have been taken to the morgue as suspects are being processed for arraignment.
Elsewhere, five robbery with violence suspects purporting to be PSV operators were earlier this week arrested within Nairobi by officers based at Buruburu. Acting on intelligence leads, the five; Samuel Maina Wanyoike, Joseph Wainana Gitau, Felix Otieno, Dennis Omondi Otieno and Collins Oduor were nabbed aboard M/V Reg. No. KBK 624 F.
