A woman says she gave birth to three children, two of whom are twins, in one year. Nompumelelo Caluza, a South African, revealed the incredible incident while recounting her difficulty in getting a birth certificate for one of the children – who is now six years old.
She said: “On 28 January 2012, I gave birth to my first daughter. A few weeks after that I fell pregnant again. This time I was blessed with twins, whom I gave birth to on 6 October 2012,” said Caluza.
The twins, Lubanzi and Lukhona, were born prematurely and had to be placed in an incubator.
“Unfortunately, Lubanzi died, but Lukhona lived. When we were discharged from Prince Mshiyeni Hospital, I tried applying for Lukhona’s birth certificate, but the Home Affairs system denied the application as it picked up that I had given birth in January the same year,” said Caluza.
She has letters from the hospital confirming her admission for the birth in January and her admission for the premature birth of the twins, and she has the death certificate for Lubanzi.
