A 26 year old woman, Nancy Malunga of Machinga Boma gave birth to set of triplets 19 days after the death of her husband who was a driver at Masongola Secondary School in Zomba.
The babies who were naturally conceived at St Lukes Hospital at Malosa in Zomba, are all beautiful girls.
She said the three baby girls weighed 1.9 kgs, 2.2 kgs and 2.3 kgs respectively.
Malunga and the babies were discharged after the 1.9 kgs baby “increased her weight.”
‘‘I have nothing to do in the meantime but I lack good capital with which to start business,” the widowed Malunga said adding she doesn’t have any income generating means to sustain her and the triplets.
Malunga has a girl child who was born in 2010 apart from the newly born triplets thus making her a mother of four.
She was married to Fred Nkolola who died on November 11th was laid to rest on 12th November in Balaka. Nkolola worked in the ministry of education as a driver in less than five years.
In the meantime the Social Welfare Office in Machinga said will monitor the triplets from now.
According to District Social Welfare Officer, Bertha Mijoya pledged to supply bay powdered milk to the triplets.
She added that her office will link Malunga to other well-wishers to cater for other needs.
Malunga who comes from Katoleza Village, Traditional Authority Mpama in Chiladzulu lost both her parents some years ago.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
