A 9-year-old victim of child sexual exploitation gives birth in Zimbabwe

In Zimbabwe, a 9-year-old girl who was the victim of child sexual exploitation gave birth to a kid.

On November 14, 2022, at United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH), the Tsholotsho minor gave birth to a baby girl via C Section while being closely watched by a team of medical professionals.

The development was verified to journalists on Monday by Dr. Harrison Rambanapasi, acting clinical director for United Bulawayo Hospitals.

“I would like to let the country know that our nine-year-old gave birth at UBH. Early this morning, our doctors conducted the C-section. The result is a healthy baby girl who weighs little more than 3kg. The mother and the child are both doing well, he added.

The father of the girl was arrested on 29th of August, 2022 and is assisting police with investigations.

The father was the only male relative the victim lived with. Also, the victim said that the abuse only occurred at night.

Meanwhile, the First Lady Dr Auxillia Mnangagwa said she is relieved the 9-year old girl has given birth safely to a bouncing baby girl.

In a statement, Dr Mnangagwa said she is thankful to have managed to visit her with groceries and other items on Saturday before she delivered.
