Harare - Residents of Zimbabwe's Gokwe region have been left baffled after a 36-year-old woman gave birth to a frog-like creature after she suddenly got into labour while at home.
According to The Herald, the expectant parents, Nomore and Precious Nyathi, kept the creature in their bedroom for several days before a local leader was tipped to intervene in the matter.
The expectant mother was said to have been due at the end of the month. She left doctors at the Gokwe District Hospital shocked when she informed them that she had given birth to a frog.
"She was our patient who would come for routine reviews together with other pregnant women."
"We were shocked when she visited the hospital in the company of her husband and some neighbors saying she had delivered a frog," a source at the hospital was quoted as saying.
Her husband expressed his trauma over the ordeal, claiming that he and his wife held on to the creature because the incident left them confused and distraught.
The woman said the incident will haunt her for the rest of her life, a Zim News said.
"It's a hellish experience which will haunt me all my life. I don't know how our traditional leader will help us on this one because the hospital authorities could not give us any explanation to this," she said said.
