Early this year, I published an article in which Jezebel and Philip went to the charlatan popularly known as Dr Kankhande in a desperate quest for the traditional solution to their childlessness. You recall very well that Dr Kankhande landed behind the bars because he gave the woman stupifying drugs and raped her… Well, something unusual has happened again.
Two months after the shameful ordeal, Philip grabbed an opportunity to be working with a certain foreign investor. He was sent abroad to study before actually fully starting the work. Immediately after Philip’s flight, his wife thought of cheating him that God had heard their concerns.
“Darling, it seems the heavens have now smiled at us, as we are going to be called a father and a mother,” Jezebel said on phone.
“What do you mean?” Philip asked, curious.
“I mean I’m pregnant,” she said, adding, “It‘s now two months since I conceived… Remember that there is always an end to everything. And the time for us to be childless is over.”
Philip could not say anything more than to take it from his wife, as he remembered that on farewell they had coitus… In fact he is too gentle – as gentle as a lamb.
And while the clueless Philip has been patiently waiting to become a father, his wife has been planning to use every trick in the book in order to get a baby. All along she has been putting on a pile of clothes to ensure that she has a bulging belly like that of an expectant woman. So, last week Philip had a chat with his wife on phone in which he informed her that he would be travelling back this week… And two days ago, his wife went to the hospital in order to steal a newly born baby. When she got there, she started loitering around the campus. At one point in time she got a chance to be near the infant that was left alone in bed. She took it away; but before she could go out of the campus she was caught.
Meanwhile she is due to appear before the court of law to face the charge of child stealing… It is very unfortunate that she has never in terms with the fact that her barrenness is a repercussion of the several unsafe abortions which she has had carried out.
