Mombasa nanny caught breastfeeding employer’s baby

A police officer in Mombasa is the latest victim of house help drama after she caught the house help breastfeeding her four-month old baby.

The police officer said that she arrived home from work to be greeted by the sight of her house help seated on the couch with the baby on her laps, latched to a bare breast.

On seeing her boss, the house help, who has been employed for five months, quickly placed the baby on the seat and stood up in shock.

When questioned why she was breastfeeding the baby, the house help got defensive, claiming that it was not her intention.

The police officer, who is a corporal, quickly called in a neighbour who also tried inquiring from the house help about her actions. The house help only kept apologising.


“Until now she has not given any explanation as to why she did it and is not giving us details of whether she has in the past breastfed my baby,” said the baby’s mother, who recorded a statement at Changamwe Police Station.

“The house help is still in my house as we wait for tests to be done on her and my baby to determine any risks,” she said.

The officer said she had received a recommendation from a family member to hire the house help who hails from Mumias.

“Her output was good and she never failed to do her work. I never had an issue with her performance,” she added.

The house help has a seven year old child whom she left at her rural home before going to Mombasa for employment.
