Woman who gave birth by the roadside discharged from hospital

A woman who gave birth to a bouncing baby girl by the roadside at Muthurwa Market two weeks ago was on Thursday discharged from hospital.

Jane Kwamboka gave birth with the help of Sonko Rescue Team and was later taken to Pumwani Maternity Hospital where she has been receiving medical attention.

On Thursday as the new mother was being discharged, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko gifted her with shopping that will last her and her newborn baby a whole month.


“Do you remember Jane Kwamboka who was assisted by Sonko Rescue Team to give birth to a bouncing baby girl by the roadside at Muthurwa? Good news is ame dischargiwa from Pumwani Maternity Hospital” Sonko posed on Twitter.

“My team wamempa shopping ya one month as she heads back home to Kisii County after mtoto amegrow kiasi. We wish Mama Kwamboka and her newly born baby a happy life,” Sonko said.


He also shared several photos showing the shopping he gifted the mother, including cooking oil, packets of cooking flour, diapers and body oil.

Pumwani Maternity Hospital Administrator, Geoofrey Mosiria, said that mother and baby were both doing fine at the time of their discharge.

Early this year, the Governor Sonko came to the aid of a man who tried to sneak his baby out of Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) by paying his hospital bill amounting to Sh56,000 as well as giving him a job in the county government.
