A woman (names withheld) gave birth to a strange looking
child on Monday at the General hospital Kagarko, Kagarko local

“When the bleeding persisted, I sent for the medical director
and when she came, we went into the theatre to operate on
the woman. In the process, the baby started coming out with
the legs. So, the medical director asked me to stop and allow
her to deliver the baby by herself.
Speaking further, the nurse said, “She delivered the baby
breech and when it came out, we discovered that it was an
abnormal baby. It was half human and half animal. We lost the
baby shortly after delivery.
The nurse who spoke on condition of anonymity said the baby
weighed four kilograms adding that the mother of the baby is
