According to the doctors, the condition was as a result of the underdeveloped twin who failed to split from the other embryo.

Ruthy Mutanimiye, the baby’s mother said that Andrew is responding to treatment and she thanked the Namibian government who came in to support her baby’s operation she could not afford.

The money was donated from a fund that assists state patients with no access to private medical care in Namibia.
