Dudzai Matewu and David Shumba
A-20-YEAR-OLD  woman from Mbare in Harare has given birth to quadruplets.
Mrs Alice Mutasa delivered her bouncing girls through normal delivery at Harare Central Hospital two weeks ago weighing 2,5kg, 2,3kg, 2,1kg and 1,6kg each.
She could not hide her joy.
“I knew I had quadruplets because I had gone for a scan before I gave birth so I was prepared for my girls,” she said.

Mrs Mutasa said she was happy to have the babies although she is unable to cater for them.
She now has five children.

“The only challenge I have is providing for the children. My husband is self-employed and does not make much money while I am also unemployed,” she said.
Mrs Mutasa’s husband is a vendor in Mbare.

She is surviving on donations and is appealing for help from well-wishers.
“We are appealing to well-wishers to help us since things are tough for us.

“We already had one child before these four so there are now seven of us living in one room,” said Mrs Mutasa.
“I do not have anyone to assist me save for my mother who lives in Buhera. Even if I choose to call her, I have nowhere to accommodate her,” she said.

Mrs Mutasa said although she received clothing for the babies from the Society of St Vincent de Paul of the Roman Catholic Church, she needed more clothing and food.
A matron at Harare Central Hospital, Mrs Dade Pedzisai, said Mrs Mutasa required more spacious  accommodation.

“In such a scenario we usually discharge maternity mothers when their child reaches two kilogrammes but Mrs Mutasa’s three babies weighed two kilogrammes and above while one is less than two kilogrammes and they are still in hospital because she has no decent accommodation,” said Mrs Pedzisai.

        She has enough now and clearly she cannot afford to look after them. Don’t breed if you cannot look after your children is my point.

    • Jonathan Chando

      Who told you kuti hakuna hari. You think kuti ku save nemari ndookushaya hari. The loving and caring that the parents have for their children is enough hari to see them succeed with them. It’s not all about a extravagant life.

    Congratulations you woman. God will intervene. The government should in future have a policy that seeks to assist such scenarios. Anyone who gives birth to three or more children should be assisted by the State.

    • majetsha

    • Positive Thinking

      These are what we call miracle babies, not ones that are said to be conceived and born in three days from the so called man of god.

  • bb.Kwekwe

    This great piece of news happened on the 19th of May, 2014, and the paper is reporting on the 11th of June, 2014…the time lag, be on site and report as things happen. It reminds me of Tombs Buses, they are all written at the back ”On time every time”, I like that.

  • Judas Iscariot

    Once again i ask mr Tobaiwa Mudede to put his money where his mouth is,he is on record discouraging Zimbabweans from using contraceptives.These are some of the challenges that are forcing some pple to consider contraceptives.So if you can prove govt is prepared to step in and provide for families like this one, a lot of Zimbabweans might consider more kids.Countries like the US provides what they call food stamps,they provide govt housing,they provide,welfare cheques,they provide free daycare assistance.free healthcare for poor families with bunch of kids,thats a sure way of encouraging population growth They also have places where you can go and leave your new born baby if you don,t want the baby with no questions asked,this is meant to discourage abortions..You can,t encourage,unemployed, homless pple to have lots of kids.how will they provide shelter for those precious little ones?

  • Charles Ruwizhi

    But I shudder to think of the challenges of raising quadruplets in this day and age in Zim. Even those with money will cringe at such a prospect.

  • Re-Run

    The story is deficient in that it is talking abt mai 4 asking for help, but fails to provide details of how well-wishers can assist. I have seen someone posted some numbers on this forum but that very suspicious. Herald, consider running the story again and provide contact details, if u want to be of help to this family
