Long Abstract: DNA tests yesterday cracked the mystery of the so-called miracle babies: They are not related at all to the 56-year-old who claimed to have given birth to them at four-month intervals. A top government official yesterday revealed to the East African Standard that the 12 "miracle babies" had no genetic link with Mrs Eddah Odera. At the same time, the Criminal Investigation Department issued a public appeal to help identify the true parents of 21 "miracle" children- 13 taken from the Odera and nine picked up from the home of evangelist Gilbert Deya. "We are looking good. There is no such thing as a miracle and I don’t think you believe in it. The DNA tests have shown no link between the children and the suspects we are holding," said the official. The official added that it was suspected that an international child trafficking syndicate exists in Kenya and this is what the police were working to crack.
