A 20 year old woman on Wednesday gave birth at Uhuru Park after losing her hotel job and later kicked out of a lodging in Nairobi’s Muthurwa area because she could not raise Sh50.

Rebecca Atieno had nowhere to go and was at the time heavily pregnant. She had separated from her baby’s father and her family was miles away in Kisumu.

All alone in the city, Atieno walked to the recreational park perhaps to recollect her thoughts but little did she know, it was here she would meet her bundle of joy.

Her water broke at around 2PM and then kicked in the labour pains. 30 minutes later, she gave birth to her daughter whom she named Hope.

A good samaritan who found her under a tree called for help and the St John’s Ambulance personnel performed an emergency procedure and later rushed her and the baby to Kenyatta National Hospital.

The new mother had prior to giving birth to baby Hope, gone for two antenatal check ups at Bahati Hospital in Eastlands.

A local daily also reports that Atieno has a Maasai blanket and a single pack of diaper for her child.

Here are some comments from the online community:

Her hospital bills, Kahawa Tungu understands have already been settled.
