There was shock at Thyolo District Hospital female ward on Tuesday when a woman who was admitted complaining of stomach pains on the day delivered a K20 note.
The lady, Faith Gama 20, who comes from Makande in came to Thyolo District Hospital on Tuesday morning after being referred from Chisoka Health Centre where she was taken for treatment.
A medical Officer who admitted the lady, Wales Mvona said she came complaining of stomach pains, but pregnancy was ruled out.
“She came in great pains. Looking at the nature of pains, we carried out pregnancy tests which came out negative and there was no other sign of pregnancy and we suspected that it may be Pelvic Inflamatory Disease so we admitted her for further help,” said Mvona.
“But,” he added, “It came as a shock to me to learn that the lady had delivered K20. When she arrived she had difficulties in walking, but after the delivery she was no longer in pain and was able to walk on her own.”
Mvona said that he re-examined her and the pains she had in the morning had gone after the delivery of the note. He however said that there was no scientific explanation of the incident.
“When I went to re-examine her I was shown the moist bank note. But there’s no scientific explanation apart from it being inserted before hand.
A nurse on duty during the delivery, Ellen Namwiyo said she saw the most bank note coming out of the woman.
“Though early tests had revealed that she was not pregnant, her pains and her stomach seemed like she had something in her stomach and she said she wanted to deliver something. When we came to her, she pushed and delivered K20 banknote that was moist,” said Namwiyo.
However, her husband, Robson Gama who works at Makande Prison told said it was not the first time for his wife to deliver something strange.
“She has delivered a K20 bank note and now she is feeling better. In May she had a miscarriage, but soon after that miscarriage she delivered a charm and we sought help from our pastor and fellowship who had been praying with us.
“The whole of last week she was complaining of stomachache, but it got worse yesterday (Monday), we called for friends our pastor and friend who prayed with us,” said Gama.
Gama showed the K20 note to the reporter which he had put in a plastic paper and was still at the hospital waiting for results of a scan that was done on his wife who is a mother of one child.
According to Gama, in the morning his wife was crying and she told him she cannot be well unless by grace of God.
Gama added that before the incident his wife was also passing out due to the pain, but that he was glad that God had helped his wife to become well again.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
