No doctors to attend to baby born with transparent stomach

a 20 year old Adolescent in Solwezi last week on Wednesday gave birth to a baby girl with a transparent skin

On the stomach revealing sections of the intestines.

Ms Maureen Katende , the mother of the infant, told ZANIS in an interview today that she gave birth to a set of twins at her home around 09:00 hours on the material day.

The mother said upon realizing the conditions of one the twins, she rushed the infant to Solwezi General Hospital where some unnamed Doctors promised to attend toi her baby.

However, Katende ‘s infant was unattended to for two days, prompting her to back home with her baby.

She further told ZANIS that her family was now raising funds to take her baby to Mukinge Mission Hospital for specialist treatment .

And Solwezi District Commissioner Troshiber Fulayi, who rushed to check on the infant, expressed surprise at the unbecoming behavior of the district hospital staff.

The commissioner said the hospital staff had abrogated the infant’s rights for health services by their refusal to attend to her saying they the staff should have instead referred the infant and the mother to other specialist hospitals in the country.
