  • #Ugandan woman aged 37 has 38 children

     

    A 37-year-old Ugandan woman has given birth to 38 children.

    The mother, Miriam Nabatanzi Babirye, nicknamed Nalongo Muzaala Bana, which means “the twin mother who produces quadruplets has delivered all her children at home except her last one who is now four months old.

    The mother has six sets of twins, four sets of triplets, three sets of quadruplets and two single births, this according to How Africa.

    Ten of the children are girls while the remaining 28 are boys. The eldest one is 23 years old, while the last born is four months.

    The eldest of the brood is 23 years old and the youngest just four months and was delivered through Cesarean delivery.

     

    The mother of 38 claims she was married off by age 12 in 1993 to a much older 40-year-old man

    Mariam says her husband is non-supportive and is rarely there for her and her children.  Her eldest son, 23, confirmed this saying that the last time he saw the father was when he was 13 years.

    In a recent interview with a Ugandan daily, Miriam said:

    “My father gave birth to 45 children with different women and [they] all came in quintuplets, quadruplets, twins and triplets.”

    Dr Charles Kiggundu, a gynecologist at Mulago Hospital confirms that Mariam may have taken after her father, as her case may be genetic.

    “Her case is genetic predisposition to hyper-ovulate (releasing multiple eggs in one cycle), which significantly increases the chance of having multiples; it is always genetic.”

  • #PM HAILEMARIAM: ANNOUNCED THE CANCELLATION OF A PLAN TO CONSTRUCT THE RAILWAY IN THE NORTHWEST #ETHIOPIA

     

    Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn announced the cancellation of a plan to construct the railway in the northwest Ethiopia.

    The Premier made the controversial statement in a town hall meeting in Adwa town last Monday.

    PM Hailemariam said: “A railway is expensive. It costs about 4 million dollars per kilometer in a plain ground. In the mountainous northern Ethiopia, it costs about 7-8 million dollars per kilometer”. It wasn’t clear how those figures were calculated.

    Therefore, Hailemariam said he is uncertain when a railway route might reach the area. Yet, he advised the audience to focus on development, “as your city grows, the train gets closer”. At one point, he suggested it might not happen ”in our lifetime”.

    Hailemariam’s statement, however, contradicts the official line of the government.

     

     

    The 10-years plan unveiled by the government unveiled in 2010 aimed to build 4,780 km National Railway Network.

    According to that plan, the first phase consisted the construction of about 1,800 km railway line in four routes: Addis Ababa to Djibouti, Addis Ababa to the southwestern Bedele, Awash (near Addis Ababa) to Hara Gebeya(Woldya) to the northern city Mekelle, and Hara Gebeya to Assayta to Djibouti.

    The second phase was to connect Jimma to Dima (South Sudan border), Ijaji to Nekemet to Assosa to Kimuruk, Mekele to Shire, Fenote selam to Bahir dar to Wereta to Woldia, Wereta to Azazo to Metema and Adama to Indeto to Gassera to Ginir.

    However, by 2015, when the first phase was supposed to be completed, the Ethiopian Railway Corporation could only report the near-completion status of the Addis Ababa – Djibouti route, while construction contracts for the Awash – Hara Gebeya(Woldya) – Mekelle and the Hara Gebeya – Assayta railway lines were awarded.

    The causes of the under-performance were said to be low institutional capacity and lack of financial sources.

    The government quietly downsized its ambitions to 1545 kilometers in the plan for 2016-2020 period. The plan document stated the target for the current period would be “the completion and operationalization of the networks began in the previous plan period and making preparations to launch construction of new railway projects”.
