Woman Formerly Ridiculed Blessed With Triplets...Husband Begs For Handouts...

A couple in Githurai, Nairobi County recently welcomed triplets into their family after a 21-year long struggle with infertility.
The journey to having children for the couple, Florence Makena (49) and her husband John Gitobu (57) culminated with the birth of their three sons, three months ago.
Speaking to reporters, the first-time parents could not contain their excitement over the bundles of joy explaining their children’s names held sentimental value to their existence.

“I named one Miracle because their birth was nothing short of one, the other we called him Emmanuel to remind us that God is with us and the other Junior,” Makena stated.


Florence added that she had endured a lot of ridicule over the years for not having a child recalling that she once got pregnant but could not carry the baby to term. :oops:
Her husband, however, noted that even though they were blessed to have the children, they now faced the burden of fending for them since the Covid-19 pandemic had adversely affected their only source of income.

“Financially, we are in a tough place, because at the hospital there’s still a bill of Ksh100,000 to be paid and we also still need money for food and other things the babies might need,” Gitobu stated.

In a similar incident in 2019, a couple in Machakos county welcomed triplets, who were their first children, after eight years of marriage.

Months earlier in Kitengela, a man abandoned his wife following the surprise birth of their triplets. o_O


According to the Office on Women’s Health, most cases of female infertility are caused by problems with ovulation. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Some signs that a woman is not ovulating normally include irregular or absent menstrual periods.

In men, infertility is attributed to a number of factors including a condition called varicocele which occurs when the veins on a man’s testicle(s) are too large. This heats the testicles. The heat can affect the number or shape of the sperm. Other factors that cause a man to make too few sperm or none at all include when a man is born with problems that affect his sperm. Other times problems start later in life due to illness or injury. For example, cystic fibrosis often causes infertility in men.

Causes of infertility by medical magazine inviTRA.

Infertility can be treated with medicine, surgery, artificial insemination, or assisted reproductive technology.
Many times these treatments are combined. In most cases, infertility is treated with drugs or surgery.

His ways are truly not our ways. Hawa wanevumilia mengi. I suspect those kids will be something else.

Why the fuck do people still insist on giving their children muzungu names?

V happy for them. It is v hard work but well worth it.

Si kwa ubaya but if you’re 57 and you can’t even clear a 100k hospital bill ya bibi mwenye amejifungua, how will you provide for those kids? Pampers, medicine, food, clothes, fees, that shit ain’t cheap. Huyo mzee atafanya kibarua at his age? Bibi ataenda sokoni tena? They’ve been trying for 21 years but are they in any position to raise a family?

I admire their desire to push on and have a child of their own. Only they know what they have been thru. They prolly did not expect 3 in 1. They will make it somehow…but in the meantime I am sure the ever generous Kenyans will support them.
Most Kenyan men would have left that lady a long time ago…

How did she ovulate at 49 years? Wow. Did they use assisted reproduction, and if so how did they afford it? Pretty amazing.

Ata mimi sijaelewa hao wayu shida yao iko wapi

Look at you. Ati assisted nini? Wewe kweli uko na USA mindset. :D… Watu wako na shida ya 100k ndio unasema assisted reproduction. This is what it is. A miracle. Yaani kitu science haiezi explain. Yaani rules of nature have been set aside so that He can exercise His Will.

But again. I could be wrong and we later discover it was a con. But until then. I am going with suspension of nature. And Miracle of God. And hope for man that prayers are answered.


I dont know if I am naive…

But at 49 years the woman should be experiencing menopause and shouldnt be able to give birth…

The more reason they’re calling it a miracle. There are a few cases I’ve seen before, but you’re right, very rare.

A hundred k is not petty cash even for the middle class in Kenya. I believe they will somehow surmount the challenge and bring up their kids successfully

It’s good for them. I hope they stop there and focus on the 3 they have
