Elizabeth Bwalya Mwewa, a Zambian nurse who reportedly swapped nearly 5,000 babies among wrong parents, is said to have to begged for forgiveness from her sick bed.
Mwewa, according to a Zambia.co.zm report, is suffering from terminal cancer. As such, the old woman who worked at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in the 1980’s, is trying to make amends for her waywardness.
Mwewa reportedly claimed on Monday, April 1, 2019 that since her indiscretions, she has found Jesus Christ. That being said, she wanted to apologise to anyone who might have been a victim of a 12-year baby-swapping misadventure.
Mwewa was quoted as saying: “I used to swap babies at UTH for fun”. I have terminal cancer and I know I will be dying soon. I wish to confess my sins before God and before all the affected people especially those who were giving birth at UTH during my service.” I have found God, now born again. I have nothing to hide, In the 12 years I worked in the maternity ward at UTH, I swapped close to 5000 babies” “If you were born in UTH between the years 1983 to 1995 chances are your parents may not be your biological parents. I had developed a habit of swapping newly born babies just for fun.” I am also asking Zambians to forgive me for the evil things I was doing to innocent children.”
It is not known if any parent has come up to protest the legitimacy of their child since Mwewa’s confessions.
To YEN.com.gh’s understanding, no legal case has been filed against Mwewa and the hospital in which she is supposed to have worked has not issued a statement in this regard
