The couple, Joseph and Nyaradzo Mugova from Mahoto Village in Zimuto area who have three other children with the first born aged 14 also living with disabilities said their triplets were a source of pride to their family.

In Joseph's family where there are nine members and only one was reportedly born without any form of disability.

The triplets; two girls and a boy who are reportedly in good health were delivered at Masvingo General Hospital a fortnight ago.

Speaking to B-Metro Nyaradzo's brother, Warren Maganga said although the couple was happy to have been blessed with triplets their challenge was providing for the children as they were not employed.

"Although the couple is happy to have been blessed with triplets the only challenge they will face is providing for the children since they are not employed.

They are purely surviving on donations and are appealing for more help from well-wishers since things are tough for them," he said. He said those who want to assist the couple can phone on 0777250314 or 0772601709.
