Kenyans celebrate matatu tout who helped a woman give birth

Embassava Sacco operators have won the hearts of Kenyans after their crew helped an expectant woman deliver a baby on Saturday night.

The woman was on her way to Pumwani Maternity Hospital in the company of her husband when she developed contractions at the Embakasi Bus Terminus.

I just saw a woman writhing in pain before she went down on her knees while her husband, who was carrying a bag, tried to help her to her feet. Just then she made a loud scream and the baby came out, luckily enough I was right on time to hold the baby’s head as she came out,” Joseph Anari, one of the matatu crew members told a local daily.

Eye witnesses recounted that the crew offered their jackets to wrap the baby and cordoned off the area as other well-wishers also joined in with another woman offering her hairband to tie the baby's umbilical cord.

I left Ruiru hoping to have my wife admitted at Pumwani Maternity Hospital but the baby came on our way to the terminus," said the baby's father.
