An astonishing spectacle is unfolding at Sally Mugabe Hospital after an expecting mother, Blessing Kachembere, gave birth on 17 August.

In a bizarre chain of events, the midwife told her she had delivered a boy. The baby was taken to the nursery, as per routine.

The following day, the mother was shocked to be told that she had actually given birth to a girl, not a boy. It was a bombshell. She had phoned her husband, sharing the joyous news of a baby boy's arrival. The man has always desired a boy, but his delight soon turned to anger.

The couple is accusing hospital staff of swapping babies. They flatly refused to take the girl. Yesterday, the hospital collected a DNA sample from the woman, who has since been discharged.

The baby girl remains in the nursery and her fate depends on the all-important DNA result.
