Long Abstract: A DNA test carried out by the British High Commission failed to confirm a mother-child biological link in a miracle babies saga even as Archbishop Gilbert Deya, at the centre of an alleged international human trafficking syndicate, struggled to defend his bizarre theory. Ray Kyles, the deputy High Commissioner yesterday said that two women, both of them British nationals had recently walked into the Embassy and applied for passports for newly-born infants. "Each one of the women had an infant which they claimed was a miracle birth," Kyles said, "but a DNA test carried out on one pair did not establish a match. Papers presented for the passport applications also turned out to be forgeries in both cases." The official said the Embassy has since handed over the matter to Kenyan authorities, who could be investigating an alleged human trafficking syndicate with international links.
