A father of six in West Pokot county has reportedly gone missing after his children suddenly increased from six to ten in just one day.
This is after his wife delivered quadruplets on Friday, November 6 at a hospital in Kacheliba constituency of Pokoto county.
According to the reports, Rosaline Ng’irokomol went into labour on Thursday without the slightest indication that she would deliver quadruplets.
She is now appealing for assistance from well wishers to help her feed the now grown family and with her husband having gone missing, according to herself.
The 30-year-old woman delivered the quadruplets through normal delivery, weighing between 1.5 kgs to 1.8 kgs.
Two were boys and two girls. She had to be transported 50 kilometers away from the initial hospital to West Pokot county hospital that has better facilities to enable her young ones survive.
She said that in Pokot culture, it is taboo to give birth to more than one baby in one birth and thus believes its the reason her husband has gone missing.
In February 2015, a woman in Meru gave birth to quadruplets after a 40-year wait to have a child.
The lady, unlike Rosaline, was overjoyed at the ‘gift’ God had given her and rewarded her patience.
