31-year-old Salone Lady bears Triplets

In just few months after a young woman gave birth to triplets at the Wilberforce Barracks in the west end of Freetown, a 31-year-old-woman who resides at No. 3 Crab Town in the west end of the city also has delivered another set of triplets. The wife of Mr. Abubakarr Conteh whose name was given by her husband as Zainab gave birth to three bouncing baby boys on Tuesday the 13th of November 2007.

Speaking to our reporter who contacted them at their residence, the lucky father said he got married to Zainab just a year ago, and that they have since been praying for God to bless them with a child.

He said he is now happy that the Almighty God has answered their prayers. He disclosed that since Zainab got pregnant some eight months back, they regularly attended Church services to seek God’s guidance and protection for a safe delivery.

"Today is a historic day in our matrimonial home for God to bless us with these children. In actual fact, I was expecting only one child and more especially a boy, but to my greatest shock, I have been blessed with three boys", Mr. Conteh stated with joy.

While thanking God for his divine provision, he hastened to call on people to assist them as he was only preparing for one and he has got three. In a rather piteous tone, the father said his family is very poor hence can find it a bit an over burden to provide for all of them. "But I still hope to the grace of God", he concluded.

The blessed mother on her part said she was not expecting triplets as the period of pregnancy lasted for only eight months two weeks, not the normal nine months.

She said she when she started experiencing labour pains three days back, she went for prayers at the Burning Bush Church where Pastor Mani prayed for her and she afterwards gave birth to the triplets. The Pastor named the children after Moses, Joshua and Gabriel respectively.
