Watch video below

After nurses at Nyamhunga Clinic in Kariba reportedly turned a woman away arguing they were on lunch break recently, the latter gave birth in the full glare of onlookers outside the medical centre.

According to some sources, the middle-aged woman was turned away for not wearing a face mask as required under Covid-19 regulations when she visited the clinic, and the nurses instructed her to go and fetch before they could attend to her New Zimbabwe reports.

However, she was already experiencing labor pains and begged the nurses to be attended to her until she was forced to deliver in the open.

The shocking incident was last week the talk of the resort town as a video, captured by an onlooker, of the woman being assisted by a male nurse while at the clinic’s yard, went viral on social media.

The publication also reports that Kariba mayor George Masendu professed ignorance over the incident when he was contacted for comment.

In the video footage, the nurse is seen cutting the umbilical cord and wrapping the newly-born baby with a cloth before whisking both the baby and the mother into the local council-run clinic.
