At least there were 165 babies born at the hospital between December 20 and December 25, with 24 born on the eve of Christmas.

.Authorities said three babies were delivered through caesarian section.

Madam Mutharika hristened one baby born on Christmas Day, Emmanuella Loveness.

The First lady pesented assorted gifts to both ante and post natal patients.  The gifts comprised orange squash, cooking oil, blankets, sugar, buckets, bath and laundry soap.

Speaking in an interview after the visit, Madam Mutharika said she decided to cheer patients at the hospital considering that the period of Christmas was meant to be for sharing whatever little one had.

“I am making this visit to the hospital on the understanding that the festive period is supposed to be a period of sharing and I would encourage people of good will to consider visiting people in hospital and prison because such people cannot celebrate the season with their families,” she  said.

“I decided to come here to share with the patients, especially mothers who have given birth and those who are in labour the joy and happiness of Christmas and also encourage them that they will soon be discharged from the hospital,” she said.

District Health Officer for Mangochi, Dr. William Peno, commended the First Lady for taking time during her Christmas holiday to cheer the sick at the hospital, saying the facility is usually overwhelmed with high numbers of patients.-Reporting by Mana/Nyasa Times

You will be punished by God for insulting someone who has done nothing to you. Or is it because of your poverty. Sometimes it makes people aggressive.

It is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth….and the right of every child to be born!Unfortunately monsters from the West similar to Pharaoh and Herod during the infancy of Moses and Jesus respectively are here in our midst brainwashing our mothers and families to mercilessly kill their own babies in the name of women rights and freedom of choice.What a contemporary infanticide(baby killing) of our time! And paradoxically these helpless innocent babies are indeed being butchered by their very mothers and the medical professionals while legislatures,lawyers,religious leaders etc carrying the UN Human Rights Charter look on.Congratulations madam… Read more »

When you were not in power, how many times can you tell us that you visited the sick in a hospital or even in prison? So now that you are in such a positions with the NACgates around you want us to believe you as a cheerer when in fact you are thieves. If you did not nacgate then how come that you so called well wishers have paid back the money to NAC on your thefty behalf. Mind you we are no longer fools but just on lookers to see how the useless devil is working within your selfish… Read more »

The birth statistics at this hospital makes sad reading and are shocking. You Muslim people can you in the meantime stop building mosques in areas where they are not really needed and divert the money towards family planning activities in Mangochi otherwise don’t over flood other districts who are taking family planning issues seriously. If you don’t change your production statistics Mangochi people should be quarantined so that they face the consequences of population explosion.
