A 53 year old woman and her 94 year old husband have given birth to a baby girl in Mongu district of Western Province.

Speaking in an interview with Zanis at their residence in Mongu today, Brendah Kashumba aged 53 and her husband Gorebrown Kashumba 94 were in great shock over the development because her menstrual cycle stopped four years ago.

Mrs Kashumba described the baby as a gift and miracle from God, and have since named the baby girl Miracle.

Mrs Kashumba said the birth of Miracle has come with new challenges, adding that she now needs someone to teach her how to care for the little baby, as she had one, 30 years ago.

Mrs Kashumba added that though she is still recovering from her operation, she is happy that God decided to bless her with the gift of once again becoming a mother.
