Nurses: We Don’t Know the Oderas

Four midwives held by police over the controversial miracle babies‘ saga have disowned the woman who claims to have given birth to ‘miracle babies’ at their place of work.

They told investigators that they never saw the Mrs Eda Odera deliver at the clinic and maintained that the babies were delivered and left by different women within the clinic.

Their statement contradicted those of Mrs Mary Deya, Archbishop Deya’s wife, who claims that the babies were born through prayers.

Sources close to the investigations said the four nurses now claim the mothers who deliver the babies and abandon them at the clinics are paid off.

“They claim that “poor women” in the estates where the clinics are located, are identified and approached once they conceive. They are asked not to procure abortions and are promised payment.

Once they deliver at the clinics, they are paid the fee agreed upon- which ranges from Sh2,000 to Sh3, 000. They then leave without even knowing the sex of their babies, the nurses claimed.

They reportedly told the detectives from the CID’s Child and Delinquency Department that they work on instructions that they don’t reveal secrets pertaining to their workplace.

The nurses have been working at Mama Lucy Clinic in Huruma estate. They were arrested on Thursday morning.

Also in police custody is Mr Daniel Ochieng, who was in charge of the clinic at the time police raided, and two Nigerians.

It is still unclear where Dr Danson Njoroge who owns the clinic is, as there were contradictory reports that he had been quizzed by police and others indicated that he had gone underground.

And police revealed yesterday they had launched investigations into possible child trafficking by the Deya ministries.

“We are pursuing that angle because there seems something fishy. So far our officers are at the Registrar of Persons’ offices and that of the A-G to authenticate all documents on these children,” said the officers.

They want to establish whether the Birth Certificates of the babies are genuine or were obtained through the right channel.

Police appealed to the public to report to them any suspicious cases of children being confined in a house.
