Sunny had just welcomed her bundle of joy and needed an extra pair of hands to help with house chores and the baby. After running into a woman at the supermarket who begged her to give her a job, she caved and decided to hire her as a nanny since she seemed pleasant. However, as soon as she got the opportunity, she robbed the couple and ran away with their baby. When the police arrived, they did what every policeman did – took statements and left with reassuring words. Read part one here. The Nanny Disappeared With Their Baby And Money. It Was A Shocking Discovery To Find Out The Mastermind Of The Kidnapping – Part 1
When they returned from the gala dinner, they could feel something was wrong. The security guard hardly acknowledged them and every light in the house was still on at around 1 am.
“Henry, what’s going on?” Sunny asked the security guard.
“I don’t know, madam, but Janet left early in the night and hasn’t come back.”
“What? And you didn’t call us?”
“She said she was going to buy some medicine for the baby. He wasn’t feeling well.”
“I will deal with you later. Let me go and see my baby first.”
They didn’t expect that Janet would rob them. They simply thought that she had snuck out to meet with a man. However, when they entered the house, they were welcomed by a horrific sight. Everything had been thrown on the ground and it looked like a tornado had struck the house.
“Call the police!” Her husband shouted as he ran upstairs to check on their son.
He found the same carnage in his son’s room; when he peered in the crib, it was empty. He let out a loud scream that alerted Sunny who was on the phone with a policeman. He handed the security guard the phone and then ran upstairs to the baby’s room.
“He’s gone! He’s gone!” He said frantically.
Unlike her husband, Sunny kept her cool. She was always calm and composed even in stressful situations. That’s what her husband loved and admired most about her. She kept him calm when things weren’t going right. Now more than ever, they needed to stay calm and come up with a plan.
A tear rolled down her smooth face but she didn’t let out a single sound.
Within a few minutes, almost 5 police cars drove into their compound with sirens on, drawing more attention than they wanted.
“Shut those things off!” She commanded one policeman.
“Sorry, madam.” He then instantly signalled them to switch off the sirens.
“What happened here?”
“Are you blind? Can’t you see we have been robbed and she took my son?”
The policeman stopped looking around and then turned to Sunny who had a cold emotionless look on her face.
“Sorry, madam. Do you know who did this?”
She unlocked her phone and then showed the policeman a picture of Janet.
“This is her. She was our nanny but I guess she had other plans.”
After taking pictures of the crime scene and taking a few notes, the policemen left. Sunny went to her husband who was still in their son’s room.
“I’ve talked to them. They’ll handle it.” She said embracing her husband.
A few days went by without any news from the police. Every time they called, they were simply told that it was under investigation. Even the calm and composed Sunny was losing her cool and there was only so much she could take.
“Call him. He’ll be able to help you.” A policeman handed her the number of one of the best DCIs.
“Thank you.” She said then walked away looking at the number.
She didn’t even reach her house before calling the number. After a few rings, a man answered.
“Yes. How can I help you?”
How did he know she needed his help? Were her nerves betraying her? It had now been a week since her child went missing and her mind was racing even though she tried to stay composed. Her husband had stopped going to work and the happiness that was once filled in their beautiful home had been replaced with sadness.
“My name is Sunny. I need your help finding someone.” She purposely left out the part that her son was missing.
“Sunny, I’ve heard about your case. I was wondering when you would call.”
She let out a loud sigh as if she had been waiting for those words. Somehow, she felt more hopeful that they would find her son.
“Can we meet in person? You can come to my house.” She said after composing herself.
He agreed and promised to be at her house in an hour. Sure enough, he was there in less than an hour and the pair went to the home office where they could talk in private. Her husband didn’t join them since he was already too emotional.
“Her name is Janet, or so we think. She approached me at the supermarket and begged me to give her a job. I spent the whole day with her and I couldn’t see anything wrong with her. At first, she was a day nanny but as time went by I needed full-time help and we asked her to move in. She worked for around two months before this.”
The man listened carefully, noting down important details just like the other policeman had done. They were quiet for a while then the man finally spoke up.
“I need her phone number and ID if you have them.”
“I do.” She said and immediately sent them to him on WhatsApp.
“Okay, I will call you as soon as I get any news.”
She had heard that line before but somehow, she felt hopeful this time. After all, the policeman had recommended Michael and hailed him as one of the best DCIs.
Janet had not tried to contact her or her husband regarding her son. This made Sunny more nervous. She didn’t know whether they wanted ransom for his return or if they would do something bad to him. There had been a lot of cases of children who had been mutilated in the news and she was scared that her son would meet the same fate.
One day after the visit, Michael called Sunny.
“I have good news. I think I know where Janet came from. She’s commonly known as Mama Hakim and she’s a market woman at Gikomba.”
“We should go there now.”
“I agree. Get dressed and I’ll come to pick you up.”
He was there in a few minutes and Sunny came out with an outfit that was not meant for the market.
“Heels? Really? We’re going to Gikomba.”
“I always wear heels.”
“It’s fine. We don’t have time to change. I think I have some old sneakers in the boot.”
“I’m not wearing your old shoes.” She protested.
“You will have to. We don’t know how long we’re walking for.”
“I’ll buy a pair of sneakers there.”
They got to Gikomba and the pair descended making their way inside. Shortly after, they resumed with mud stains on their clothes and a heavily built woman in tow.
Michael received a tip-off about a woman who matched Janet’s description in the market. She was wearing a disguise but someone had recognized her and informed the heavily built woman who called Michael immediately.
He drove to the market where the woman was still there. After observing her for a while, he was convinced that it was her and he approached her.
“Come with me.” He said in a low tone but still commanding.
“I know you’re not working alone.” He said as soon as she entered the car. “I wanted a location and names.”
She was uncooperative but one earth-shuttering slap from Michael made her sing like a canary.
“Donholm.” She said. “The baby is there with three other men.”
He called a policeman to take Janet to the police station and then drove to the house where he had been directed. Just as she said, there were three men and a baby inside the house according to the caretaker.
“I thought it was very strange that three men are living with a child.” He said. “There’s a woman who comes every morning.”
He approached the house along with two other policemen. However, when he peeped inside, he only saw two men. He instructed the policemen to back him up and arrest them as he went to get the baby.
The arrest was successful but Michael still wanted to get the third person. He asked the policemen to take the criminals to the police station and take the child to Sunny. He then sat in the sparsely furnished house waiting for their counterpart to return. At around 6 in the evening, he had a commotion outside.
“Ndio huyu (this is him).” They yelled and Michael peered through the window to see a small crowd surrounding a man.
“Tutamchoma (we’ll burn him).” The crowd was growing in size and aggression.
Michael had to intervene before they killed him. However, by the time he got down, the man had attempted to run away and the crowd chased him.
They had ransacked his pockets and removed a police badge along with a loaded gun which had been left on the ground.
“He’s a policeman,” Michael said.
He was able to catch up with the crowd and switched on his siren to disperse them. He then loaded the badly beaten man into the back of his car and drove him to the police station.
“Is this one one of yours?” Michael asked the police boss as he held the man.
“Well, he’s a policeman.” He said putting the badge and gun on the desk.
The criminal gang was charged with robbery and kidnapping. Sunny and her husband were grateful to Michael for reuniting them with their child but they were also traumatized by the experience. Sunny became a full-time stay-at-home mum and they hardly let anyone who wasn’t their family into their home.
