BY ALEX BALUKU

A 38 years old woman from Kitabu Sub-County in Kasese District gave birth to triplets at Kasese Community Health and Education Center-KACHEF on Tuesday Afternoon.

Dr. Olivia Tumukunde delivered the triplets through the caesarean method. She told this reporter that the babies and their mother were all in good health.

The Doctor added that while delivery of twins is common at their health facility, birth of triplets was rare.

Lazeri Mbambu, the triplet’s mother told this reporter that she is thankful for the babies and called on well-wishers to come to her aid, saying she is deprived.

Samuel Mbunguma, 50, whose wife gave birth to triplets also revealed that he cannot support the infants due to his family’s low income.

The father confirmed that the new born babies are in good health but also appealed for support. “I am a security guard currently on leave for one month and my salary cannot meet my family’s needs,” Mbunguma said.

“I already have other many Children with another wife and 7 with Mbambu before she gave birth to the triplets.

I consider the arrival of the babies as a Christmas gift, but I am not finding life easy again. I currently owe over One million (1,000,000/=). I need the assistance of Ugandans and other well-wishers.” He added.

Dr. Tumukunde, who delivered the triplets, also pleaded for help saying, These babies need clothes, cothes and milk. Their health is good but their mother needs serious attention as she is not able to produce enough milk to breastfeed them.

She added that the woman was diagnosed with other sicknesses that will require her more extra money. Meanwhile, Rev. Mathew Mbusa, the Station Manager for Messiah Radio together with Lay Reader Eric Byongo baptized the Triplets while in Hospital.
