Boniface Wambua and Caroline Kathini have been trying to have a child in vain until their bundles of joy got to this world.

Kathini aged 38 years could not hide her joy after giving birth to three boys at Machakos level five hospital on Monday.

The new mother, a salonist, described the whole outcome as a miracle urging childless couples not to lose hope.

"Children come from God, if you are married without kids do not give up on the marriage, do not despair this is a big miracle to us," she said.

She told how she waited patiently for the last eight years knowing she will one day be a mother. She and her babies are in stable condition.

Her overwhelmed husband though on a wheelchair watched his kids with nothing to say other than being thankful.

Mr Wambua aged 39, is an administration police officer who got crippled after being involved in a grisly road accident.

"All I can say is that keep on praying and trusting in God everything is possible," he said.
