Nakuru quintuplets

Leah Nyambura, sister to the mother of the quintuplets has said the parents are devastated over the death of their children.

Speaking to the media in Nakuru, Leah said two of the five had died in the morning, while the three passed on at around 1 pm when the family received the news.

“I urge members of the public to still support the family as they are not well as I speak,” she said.

Leah said the mother is currently undergoing counselling at the hospital.

The five were born underweight and incubated at Nakuru Level 5 Hospital’s Margaret Kenyatta Mother and Baby wing.

The hospital’s Medical Superintendent, Aisha Maina on Wednesday said that the four girls and one boy weighed between 500 grams and 650 grams.

She said the mother, 25-year-old was in a stable condition and would be discharged once the infants attained the right body weight.

Maina said Wangui visited the hospital’s outpatient wing with discomfort, on January 29.

“On checking her, the medics realized that she had multiple pregnancies,” Maina said.

She said Wangui was then admitted for observation because she had a high-risk pregnancy.

At the time, the expectant mother’s pain exceeded, compelling the medics to do an emergency Caesarian Section to save her and the babies.

“The babies were delivered at seven months and have to be incubated for survival,” Maina said.
