After struggling with infertility for an extended period, a 70-year-old woman in Uganda has experienced the joy of welcoming twins into the world.

Safina Namukwaya gave birth to a baby boy and a baby girl at a medical facility in Kampala, Uganda’s capital, with the help of fertility treatment. Dr. Edward Tamale Sali, the supervising doctor, expressed his astonishment at this remarkable achievement, considering it a significant milestone in Africa’s medical history.

Currently, Namukwaya and her newborns are being cared for at the Women’s Hospital International and Fertility Centre, and reports indicate that their health is stable.

Living in the rural area of Masaka, approximately 120 kilometers (75 miles) west of Kampala, Namukwaya expressed her overwhelming happiness and gratitude for the unexpected arrival of the twins, especially given her age. She shared her previous experience of being mocked as a “cursed woman” due to her inability to conceive, but found joy in giving birth to a girl in 2020.

Namukwaya disclosed that her first husband passed away in 1992, leaving her childless, and she met her current partner in 1996. However, she expressed disappointment that he has not visited her since she went to the hospital for delivery, speculating that his absence may be due to concerns about the responsibilities associated with having twins.

She remarked, “Maybe he is not happy that I delivered twins because men don’t want to know you are carrying more than one child in a womb for fear of the responsibilities that come with that.”
