Narok children department has rescued a two-monthold baby girl who was dumped by her mother along river Olokirikirai in Narok North subcounty. According to subcounty children officer Pilot Khaemba, the minor was spotted by two girls who had gone to the river to bath after hearing a baby crying from the nearby bush. The two girls carried the baby to their mother Margaret Kwamboka who nursed her overnight and presented her to the children department the following day.

The baby was taken to Enabelbel Health Centre for medical examination where she was confirmed to be about two months old and in good health. The baby was transferred to Nest Children Home in Nairobi after Narok Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma ordered children department to get a Covid-19 clearance certificate before the baby is transferred to Nairobi.
