The mother of the deceased had been arrested and taken to CPS on the 17th November 2014. She was under Police custody and had been brought to Court for charging at the City Hall Court.
Two relatives of the detained lady her mother and another person came with her baby to see her at the court.
In the course of their stay, the baby strayed away and went down the slope in the parking lot behind KCCA HQs which has mature foliage forming the gardens.
A driver drove in and after dropping off staff reversed out of the parking and accidentally ran over the child, who just emerged from the foliage.
