A 22-year-old Kenyan man who attempted to smuggle his newborn daughter out of Kenyatta National Hospital pleaded guilty to his crime on Monday morning.
The man was accused of putting his newborn daughter in a carrier and attempting to sneak out unnoticed after he realized he couldn’t settle the Ksh. 50,000 hospital bill.
Although he is due to be sentenced tomorrow at the Milimani Law Courts, Kenyans online feel the man should be left free. According to some of them, the crime the man commited was influenced by poverty and he did whatever he did after running out of options.
They are now asking the judge to show some mercy on the 22-year-old and understand that unavoidable circumstances pushed him into smuggling his own baby out of the hospital.
