Social Media has seen the rise of fascinating and intriguing stories – the latest of which was a certain nurse from Zambia who allegedly swapped around 5000 babies during the course of her career.

A certain Nurse named ‘Elizabeth Mwewa’ who suffered from cancer apparently confessed on sick bed that she had exchanged 5000 babies during the year 1983-1995 at the University Teaching Hospital in Zambia.

“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, I am 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,” said Mwewa in a report from the Zambian Observer.

The report had local officials and the General Nursing Council of Zambia (GNC) spearhead an investigation on the authenticity of the news. However, they found out that there was no midwife or nurse with the name “Elizabeth Mwewa” during the years 1983 to 1995.

“Preliminary investigations into reports that about 5000 babies where swapped at the UTH between 1983 and 1995 have reviewed that there is no midwife in the General Nursing Council of Zambia Register by the name of Elizabeth Bwalya Mwewa. The investigation has also revealed that no midwife by that name ever existed and later on worked in maternity ward at the University Teaching Hospitals,” said the report from fact checking website, Snopes.

GNC Manager Regulation and Compliance and Spokesperson Thom Yung’ana assures the public that further investigations will be done to clarify the news and has sought the public to remain calm as they continue to study the bizarre case. a;
