A Ugandan has been left in shock after he received news that his wife had given birth to quintuplets. Three days after the extraordinary delivery, the man is yet to master the courage to visit his wife in hospital.

According to the new mother, Honoratha Nakato, she called her husband, who thought they were expecting twins, and gave him the good news that left him dumbfounded.

She told local stations that for the last 24 years in her marriage she was unable to bear children but later found out that she could through In vitro fertilisation (IVF) – a process of fertilisation where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body.


Ms Nakato could not hide her joy after realising that she had given birth to three girls and two boys through cesarean section.

“I do not mind the expenses that people told me I will incur, all I wanted was a child,” she said.

The expenses are not the only thing that she faces. Last year she had one of her breasts after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Ms Nakato becomes the first woman in Sub Sahara Africa to give birth to five healthy children at once with the help of IVF.
