Woman in Homa Bay gives birth to 5 babies

Jacinta Akinyi, 30, delivered the five safely at Matata Nursing Home in Oyugis town of Homa Bay County.

Speaking to journalists shortly after her delivery, Mrs Akinyi said that she woke up as usual knowing that her time for delivery would not be soon.

"There was no labour pain at all. I only felt like going for a long call but when I informed the mother-in –law she decided that we rush to the hospital," she said.

She added: "It is true I have given birth to five children but the first boy and the last one who is a girl have died."

Matata Nursing Officer Mr Kennedy Otieno said that after the death of two, the remaining three children are healthy.

"The remaining children are stable. We have realized that the biological functions of their bodies are okay," Mr Otieno said.

The mother of five has appealed for help from well-wishers.

"I am financially challenged but God has blessed me with this high number of children. May our political leaders and well-wishers come to my aid so that they survive."
