Dozens of Xmas babies born on floor at UTH

Greeting one of the mothers One of the mothers who sadly lost her baby this morning Speaking to mothers who do not have bedsMovement for Multiparty Democracy President Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba today visited UTH where he found that Christmas babies were being born on the floor and in crowded dirty rooms.

There were a total of 24 babies born at the time he was there.

Dr Mumba presented baby hampers to the mothers of the babies who expressed gratitude. One woman in particular had given birth to twins and was facing financial challenges which were significantly mitigated by Dr Mumba and his team. Dr Mumba saw for himself several women on mattresses as there are inadequate beds in the Maternity Ward.

Outside the Maternity Ward, Dr Mumba was asked by journalists about the conditions at UTH and what he would do about them once elected. He said that the current Maternity Ward is inadequate and needs to be demolished to pave way for a modern facility.
