Fourteen-year-old Mwanaharabu Wamukoya of Harambee village in Kakamega County, Kenya was admitted to Bungoma District Hospital on the evening of August 24, 2013, Saturday, and had a Caesarean Section on the next day to deliver the three baby boys.
Two of the new-borns weighed 1.5 kg while the third one weighed 1.3 kg.
Mary Marumbu, the nursing officer-in-charge, said the babies and their mother were in stable condition and ready to be discharged.
The father of the babies, a 16-year-old boy, is said to have taken off on learning that the girl had given birth to triplets. The teen is also a school dropout and does menial jobs. The arrival of the triplets is said to have distressed him.
“He has no ability to take care of the babies even if he was here. We are grateful to the government for scrapping off maternity fees because I will be free to go home once discharged. I would have been detained here if I had been asked to pay,” the teenage mother said.
Kenyan health practitioners have expressed concern over the increasing rates of teenage pregnancies.
