Friday, May 15, 2020 – Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi has gifted a couple that welcomed quadruplets with a house and money to start a business.
Kombe Charo Kazungu and his wife, Mishi Kitsao, are now parents of seven children after welcoming the quadruplets – all girls on March 17, 2020.
Kitsao delivered the babies at her Kaloleni home and was rushed to Mariakani Sub-County Hospital, where the babies were found to be underweight and were immediately referred to the Kilifi County Hospital.
The baby girls weighed 1.29kg, 1.01kg, 0.97kg and 0.93 kg and were admitted to the High Dependency Unit (HDU) for more than a month.
A nurse from the hospital by the name, Mwanavua Boga, discovered that the couple were living in deplorable conditions after their house was destroyed by flash floods in December 2019.
The nurse appealed to well-wishers to come to her rescue because she couldn’t be discharged before a solution was found.
That is when Governor Kingi promised to build a new house for the couple.
Last week, Mr. Kingi fulfilled his pledge when he handed over keys to a new house to the couple.
The nurse, who accompanied the couple and their babies to their new house, said the County Gender Department will make regular visits to ensure that the newborns were safe.
“We will do everything possible to ensure the mother and the babies are well taken care of, especially at this time when the country is battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I interacted with her during her stay at the hospital and discovered that she could not even afford to pay her hospital bills and upon further scrutiny, I also discovered that she had nowhere decent to shelter her babies,” said the nurse.
Kombe expressed his gratitude to Governor Kingi and said that he will use the money he had received from the Governor to start a business to sustain his family.
