THE once siamese twins, Bupe and Mapalo finally arrived in Mansa with their parents, a social worker, nurse and a doctor from University Teaching Hospitals.
Upon arrival, the twins underwent a review at Mansa and Kawambwa general hospitals and are in a stable condition.
Meanwhile UTH Public Relations Officer Natalie Mashikolo has confirmed that the social welfare had put the two babies at Kachema Musuma children’s home, where a team of doctors and nurses would be checking their progress before they finally proceeded to their village.
The twins underwent a seven hour surgery, which was led by Professor Lupando Munkonje, Prof Tackson Lambert, Dr Chadwick Ngwisha and Prof Sultanov and others on February 2, 2018.
The surgery was done at the woman and newborn hospital at UTH in Lusaka. A senior medical superintendent of the facility told the media that the operation was completed at 16:58 hours local time.
The children Bupe, and Mapalo were born in the town of Kawambwa in Zambia’s Northern Luapula but they were later transferred to Lusaka for further attention.
