SHOCKING: 10 year old delivers TWINs in Kisumu after RAPE from HIV+ father
Sunday, August 26, 2012 - A 10 year old class four pupil at a public school in Kisumu is alleged to have delivered twins at a local hospital in the area. The girl is said to have been impregnated by her father who has been using her as his wife after her mother died.
The young girl has been a subject of ridicule by other children in the area as she stopped going to school to deliver her babies first. Neighbors said that the girl declined to confide in them on the man responsible for her pregnancy when they discovered she was expectant.
According to a neighbor the family of three lives in poverty and the father works as a construction worker. Since the death of her mother who died out of HIV related illnesses; the girl only identified as Akinyi has been supporting her siblings by doing all the chores at home and being a mother figure.
The neighbors suspected the father to be responsible but had no proof until she went into labor and they forced her to say who the father of her child was. To their shock and amazement Akinyi confided in them that her father was responsible.
Akinyi delivered twins (both boys) at a local hospital but is still under medical care due to her age as the doctors fear she may suffer complications. It is still not clear whether Akinyi has been infected with HIV virus but a test was conducted though results kept private.
