A Kenyan court has freed on bail controversial preacher Gilbert Deya who is facing charges of stealing babies between 1999 to 2004.
Mr Deya, who claimed he created miraculous pregnancies, was extradited from the UK in 2017, just over a decade after Kenyan authorities applied for his transfer to face charges.
His release on bail follows failure by the prosecution to conclude his trial within a period of three months, news site Capital News reports.
Concerns were first raised about the conduct of Mr Deya, who ran a church in London
Infertile or post-menopausal women who attended the Gilbert Deya Ministries Church in Peckham, south-east London, were told they could have “miracle” babies.
But the babies were always “delivered” in backstreet clinics in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital.
Mr Deya later moved to Scotland, and was arrested in Edinburgh in 2006 under an international arrest warrant issued by Kenya.
