A story of a nurse who allegedly swapped about 5,000 babies so that they belonged to wrong parents, has been proven to be false by fact-checkers.
YEN.com.gh has sighted proof debunking the allegation of a Zambian nurse who reportedly swapped nearly 5,000 babies among wrong parents.
According to factcheck.afp.com, the General Nursing Council of Zambia (GNCZ) has rubbished the claims.
According to the report available to YEN.com.gh, the GNCZ said in a press release on April 5, 2019 that “there is no such midwife on the GNCZ register, neither did such a midwife ever exist and later on work in maternity ward at UTH”.
The news of the nurse, Elizabeth Mwewa, allegedly a woman dying of terminal cancer, according to a Zambia.co.zm report, worked at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in the 1980s.
Mwewa had reportedly claimed on Monday, April 1, 2019 that since her indiscretions, she has found Jesus Christ.
That being said, she wanted to apologise to anyone who might have been a victim of a 12-year baby-swapping misadventure.
It is not known if any parent had come up to protest the legitimacy of their child since Mwewa's "confessions".
The whole affair itself needed to have been met with scepticism as YEN.com.gh stated in its initial report on the matter. Primarily, it is improbable for a nurse to have come into contact with 5,000 babies in 12 years. The maths does not seem to add up.
