Timon Makswell is a relieved father after he was reunited with his 9-month-old daughter Baby Tamara who had been taken away forcefully by his in-laws.
Baby Tamara was rescued on Tuesday, March 5 by DCI detectives from the Child Protection Unit.
In a post on Twitter, the DCI announced the great news adding that two suspects have been arrested. They are expected to appear in Court today.
“Dear #KOT, Detectives from the Child Protection Unit have rescued #BabyTamara & arrested two culprits. The baby is in safe hands & the two suspects are in lawful custody & will be arraigned in court tomorrow. Thank you all for bringing this to our attention.#JusticeForBabyTamara,” read the tweet.
The rescue follows a passionate appeal from Timon Makswell who used Facebook to narrate how he was arrested and forced by his in-laws and police to give up his 9-month-old baby girl.
His touching appeal inspired Kenyans on social media to rally behind him under the hashtags #JusticeForBabyTamara and #JusticeForTimonMakswell.
This caught the attention of the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the security agency responded, instructing Tamara’s father to report the matter to any police station.
