Rutha Abishai Kumbosayo, a student from Yabongo Mixed Secondary School says her labour started last night and was taken to the hospital and delivered safely, Radio Anisa reports.
She expresses her excitement for having sat for her last paper of biology in the maternity ward.
Abishai thanked her school administration and the Minister of Education for the great effort they made to allow her sit for her last paper.
“I am struggling with education in order to have better future for myself and my three kids”, she adds.
