Swapping of Babies at Ndola Teaching Hospital

The Ministry of Health has received a report of suspected baby swap that happened at Ndola Teaching Hospital.

The incident happened between 2nd and 4th April 2019.

The two babies were born from mothers of similar first two names, same age and both underwent a similar delivery procedure just hours apart. The only difference in their names was the middle name.

DNA samples on the babies and parents have since been collected and sent to the lab for analysis, awaiting results for determination of parentage.

The babies will remain under the care of the hospital.

The general public will be informed of the outcome once the DNA results are concluded.
