Bamako | The Malian government announced, on Tuesday, that a young woman from Mali believed that she was pregnant with seven twins, and she finally gave birth in Morocco nine children, five girls and four boys, all of whom are in good health, which is an unconfirmed report on the Moroccan side.
A spokesman for the Moroccan Ministry of Health, Rachid Kazri, told AFP that he was not aware of such multiple births in a hospital in the country.
Originally from Timbuktu (North), Halima Sisi was taken care of in Bamako, then on March 30th she was transferred to Morocco to better monitor this pregnancy “out of the ordinary,” according to the Ministry of Health.
The specialists were concerned about his health and the chances of the embryos surviving.
The ministry said in a statement that Halima Sisi gave birth to a cesarean delivery Tuesday, “nine births instead of the seven announced by the results of ultrasound in Mali as well as in Morocco.”
“The mother and the children are in good condition so far,” Health Minister Fanta Sepi told AFP, noting that the financial doctor sent to accompany the mother to Morocco informed her.
She said they would be back home in a few weeks.
“She congratulates the medical teams in Mali and Morocco, whose professionalism is among the happy outcome of this pregnancy,” the minister said, “and she wishes for a long life for the infants and the mother,” according to her services.
