Namwambas bashed for bottle feeding newborn

Facebook users on Wednesday went ham on Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba’s wife, Prisca for feeding her newborn baby with a bottle.

Prisca shared a photo of her politician husband feeding their baby from a bottle in what looked like a hospital room eliciting mixed reactions on the move.

Some of the users accused the legislator’s wife of “acting too posh to breastfeed” stating that newborns should be breast fed till their immunity is strong.


Prisca had to clarify with another photo to prove that she is not a bad mother as some users had accused her saying that she only used the bottle for the days she was recovering in hospital.

The mother of three added that the milk in the bottle was breast milk that had been expressed for the baby.

Mr Namwamba is the newest “celebrity” dad in town and could not hide his joy in photos captured of him bonding with the newborn.

The Budalangi legislator clarified during a Tuesday debate in parliament that he had been on paternity leave since his third child was born hence absenting himself from political activities.
