Speaking to reporters shortly after the incident at the Narok-based health facility, Gitau revealed his biggest worry was how he was going to feed five mouths with a meager income.
The now father of five said as much as he was excited about the babies, considering it a blessing from heaven, his main concern was on raising the kids in the wake of skyrocketing cost of living.
