‘Miracle babies’ preacher Bishop Gilbert Juma Deya who faces child theft charges asked the state yesterday to supply him DNA results from the government chemist.
Through his lawyer John Swaka, Deya also confirmed to Milimani trial magistrate Francis Andayi that he has received his travel records from the Immigration department.
They show his travel from 1999 up to the time he was deported to Kenya on August 4.
He denies charges of stealing five children children between 1999 and 2004 in Nairobi. He says he was in the US.
Swaka told the court the prosecution has not supplied the defence with DNA results it needs to prepare its case before the hearing on September 9.
The DNA of the ‘miracle babies’ is to be compared with that of their infertile ‘parents’.
The magistrate directed the stateto supply the remaining evidence.
The prosecution, led by senior state counsel Nicholas Mutuku, said they will be proceed without further delay.
Deya said the charges against him are defective since they were committed when he was in the US.
The charge sheet shows the offences were committed in 2004 at a house in Mountain View estate, Nairobi, where police found five ‘miracle children’ allegedly stolen from unknown parents.
“The accused has the right to know the nature of the case he faces and to adequately prepare defence,”Swaka said.
Earlier, Swaka said all the documents they received do not disclose any grounds which would be helpful .
The preacher’s wife, Mary Deya, was jailed in 2014 for stealing a baby at Kenyatta National Hospital in 2005.
She was sentenced to three years by High Court judge Msagha Mbogholi.
She was jailed in 2011 for stealing a child and giving false information but she appealed the sentence.
