Celebrations and songs summed up the mood inside a theatre room in Kakamega General Hospital when a 28-year-old woman gave birth to five beautiful babies.
Even though the new mother identified as Evelyn Namukhula delivered through Cesarean section, doctors confirmed her infants, three girls and two boys, safely came out.
Before Evelyn Namukhula was wheeled into the delivery room, she was a mother of four children all of whom stay with her and husband Herbert Nabwire in Sisokhe village, Navakholo constituency. “I thank God for this miracle. However, I appeal to any wellwisher for any help because I will not be able to raise them alone,” she said.
Recently, 35-year-old Evelyn Osinya who is mother of six gave birth to a baby weighing 6.3 kilograms, the second heaviest newborn in Kenya’s history. In 2014, Mervin Mango, also from Busia, gave birth to the heaviest baby weighing 7 kilograms.
