YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Josephine Mwende has lived with Cerebral Palsy since childhood, a condition that affected her body movement and coordination.

The condition is mostly caused by low oxygen levels to the brain during birth, known scientifically as asphyxia, infections like meningitis, or brain injury.

Contrary to some notions, the condition is not hereditary which means it is not inherited and cannot be passed onto a newborn.
