Three sisters from Tana River County aged 16 have given birth to a set of twins at a Garissa hospital, with their gardener. The girls, who are KCPE candidates delivered their babies on Saturday through a caesarean section.
Initially, doctors in Malindi and Kilifi hospitals had disapproved of the surgical operation, advising that for them to survive, they had to sacrifice an infant each. However, their mother refused this opinion and sought help at a private hospital where the operation was carried out successfully.
However, the firstborn of the three, who was carrying triplets, had no choice but to sacrifice one infant on the doctor’s advice as it posed danger to her.
Affair with one man
They all had an affair with one man who worked in their home as a gardener. He used to lure them into the farm where he would defile them. One even confessed to having been sneaking out at night to meet him in his room. The gardener used to give them pocket money and would sometimes buy them clothes. ‘’He was so nice to me. I did not know he was doing the same to my sisters,” one of the girls said.
Their mother said that all the while, she did not notice anything strange with the girls except for the last born who had new sets of shoes and expensive underwear which she had not bought for her.
Surprisingly, the mother never suspected anything was going on until she accidentally bumped into a message on one of her daughter’s phones informing the gardener that she was three weeks pregnant.
In the phone conversation, the two were planning an abortion scheduled for two days later, and all plans were set. Surprisingly, they all knew they were pregnant and were planning an abortion because, when the mother ambushed them the following day at dawn for a pregnancy test, one of them sneaked away, and the remaining two confessed they were pregnant.
By now, the gardener had not been seen for two days and a search was mounted to try and apprehend him.
