A Kenyan hospital employee who was caught by the BBC selling a baby on the black market has been convicted of child trafficking.
Fred Leparan, who worked at Nairobi’s Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital, was filmed accepting $2,500 (£2,000) to sell a baby boy under the hospital’s care.
He was arrested in 2020 following a BBC Africa Eye investigation.
Leparan was charged alongside another hospital employee, Selina Awour, with child theft.
