A 53 year old woman and her 94 year old husband have given birth to a baby girl in Mongu district of Western Province.

Speaking in an interview with ZANIS at their residence in Mongu today, Brendah Kashumba aged 53 and her husband Gorebrown Kashumba 94 were in great shock over the development because her menstrual cycle stopped four years ago.

Mrs Kashumba described the baby as a gift and miracle from God, and have since named the baby girl Miracle.

Mrs Kashumba said the birth of Miracle has come with new challenges, adding that she now needs someone to teach her how to care for the little baby, as she had one, 30 years ago.

Mrs Kashumba added that though she is still recovering from her operation, she is happy that God decided to bless her with the gift of once again becoming a mother.

She has since advised couples who have lived for many years without children, to trust and rely on Jehovah the restorer and giver of life, adding that God works in mysterious ways.

She also revealed that hundreds of excited community members are flocking to have glimpse at her baby girl.

Meanwhile, Lewanika General Hospital Medical Superintendent Samutumwa Njekwa confirmed having received a report of a woman who gave birth after reaching her menopause.

Dr. Njekwa however, said that he can only comment on the matter after carrying out some investigations, adding that he was not around when the incident happened.

Miracle, whose other name is Mpo, which means Blessing in English was born on June 17, 2019 at Lewanika Hospital in Mongu district through caesarean section.

    • Cessation of menstrual flow age is an average. There are always some positive and negative deviations from the average although these are rare.

  1. I don’t know why this story is making news. 60 year old women were known to have given birth in Africa long before the arrival of settlers. Why is it surprising now?

  3. At 94 years the man is still sexually active. No, banamunamizila cabe m’dala uyu. Somebody did the job for him. Nevertheless, soon than later the child will be a double orphan.

  5. The commenters are busy adding something they’ve not heard instead of just accepting the fact they’ve heard. It has happened and the confirmations are there!

  6. Mpo, correctly spelt Mpho, is a Lozi / Sotho word meaning gift, not blessing, which means Tohonolofazo!
