GOKWE, (CAJ News) – IN A bizarre incident that has left a local community shell-shocked, a 36-year-old Zimbabwean woman has reportedly given birth to a frog.

The incident occurred recently in the small village of Sidojiwe in Gokwe, about 300km northwest of Harare.

Precious Nyathi, the affected woman, was eight months pregnant, when she suddenly went into labour but this turned into a nightmare when she delivered an amphibian.

“It’s a hellish experience which will haunt me the rest of my life,” she said.

Her husband, Nomore Nyathi (39), is also traumatised.

“I don’t have peace of mind. We were expecting a child, and this is what the heavens gave us,” he said.

Officials at the Gokwe District Hospital confirmed the incident.

“We were shocked when she visited the hospital in the company of her husband and some neighbours saying she had delivered a frog,” said an official who wished to remain anonymous.

The woman was given pain killers before she was discharged.

“She only had some blood stains she could have been in labour but everything on her was normal,” said the medical official.

Locals suspected witchcraft as the cause of the misfortune.
