A middle-aged woman from Nyandarua County has named two of her triplets after Deputy President William Ruto and Nyandarua Woman Representative, Faith Wairimu Gitau. The third baby was given the name Naomi Nyabuto.
Irene Kemunto, the new mother, now urges Mr Ruto to pay her a visit in hospital after Ms Gitau recently visited her at the JM Kariuki Memorial County Referral Hospital in Olkalou.
Ms Kemunto, who gave birth on June 26, remains admitted at the health facility, given her babies were born underweight.
Ms Kemunto says her admiration for Mr Ruto and Ms Gitau made her to name her children after the two leaders.
One of the babies, who is female, weighed 2.6Kgs at birth, another weighed 1.8Kgs, while the male baby weighed 2Kgs.
According to JM Kariuki Hospital charge nurse, Rose Muriithi, an earlier ultrasound scan, which had been conducted on Ms Kemunto, showed she was expecting twins, and not triplets.
Nurses discovered that Ms Kemunto was expecting triplets after she’d given birth to the first two.
Nyandarua Woman Rep, Faith Gitau, visited Ms Kemunto in hospital after she was informed that the new mother had named one of her babies after her.
Ms Kemunto is now urging the Deputy President to visit her, just like Ms Gitau did, hold and “bless” the newborn named after him.
