          This is the second case after a woman gave birth to a seven-kilogramme baby in Samia subcounty in 2014. Nangina Mission Hospital CEO Dr Ben Oriko said the woman delivered the baby via caesarean section. “She was brought in by her relatives but when I noticed her condition, I immediately alerted the health team to prepare to handle the case,” he said.

Who are the Sabaots?

The Sabaots tribe is one of the nine sub-tribes of the Kenyan Kalenjin tribe. The other eight Kalenjin sub-tribes are: Sengwer, Tugen, Terik, Keiyo, Kipsigis, Pokot, Marakwet and Nandi who live in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The Sabaots are the authentic Kalenjin tribe and hence they are commonly referred as "Kapkugo" by the other Kalenjin sub-tribes. The Sabaot community is comprised of six sub-dialects namely: 1.Bookok (Book), 2. Somek, 3. Mosopishok (Mosop), 4. Konjak (Kony), 5. Bong'omek (Bungoma), and 6. Sabinjak (Sebei) here to read more.
