‘Miracle baby’ pastor meets media


A controversial pastor who police in Kenya want to extradite in connection with an alleged child smuggling ring is to give a news conference in Glasgow.

UK-based evangelist Archbishop Gilbert Deya claims to help infertile couples conceive “miracle babies”.

But 20 children were later taken into care after raids by Kenyan police.

Archbishop Deya denies involvement in child trafficking and his lawyer says his client will not receive a fair trial if he is extradited to Kenya.

Archbishop Deya claims to have made infertile women pregnant through prayer.

However, DNA tests showed that none of the 20 children taken into care were biologically related to the women who had claimed to be their mothers.

More than 20 couples in Kenya have now come forward claiming their babies were abducted from hospital at birth.

The police investigation involves suspects in Kenya, Britain, Ghana, Nigeria and Uganda.
