Kenya: The wife of "miracle babies" preacher Gilbert Deya has been jailed for two years for child theft. DNA tests showed that the babies, which the Deyas claimed were born through divine intervention, were completely unrelated to the women who claimed to be their mothers. The judge said that
no amount of punishment could undo the damage done to the child, adding that the claim of a miraculous birth deserves no mercy.
