9 year old pregrant

A nine-year-old girl in Zimbabwe, who was allegedly impregnated by her father, has given birth to a baby girl through a caesarean section at the United Bulawayo Hospitals. The hospital’s acting clinical director, Dr Harrison Rambanapasi, confirmed the news and stated that both the baby and the young mother are in stable condition. The newborn weighs just over 3kg.

The girl’s father, who was the only male relative she lived with, was arrested in June after her pregnancy was discovered. The victim revealed that the abuse had been taking place at night. In a show of support, the Zimbabwean First Lady, Dr Auxillia Mnangagwa, visited the pregnant victim with groceries and other supplies.

Despite the brevity of this rewritten article, it covers the essential information regarding the nine-year-old girl who gave birth after being allegedly impregnated by her father. It highlights the medical procedure, the condition of the mother and baby, the arrest of the father, and the visit by the Zimbabwean First Lady.
