  1. What is wrong with you james pedro?, you are an ignorant person. The woman’s husband said she was having pains and kept it to her self. What the hell the minister has to do with this woman’s death….fool…Are you saying mothers are only dying now because of the minister, have you been living under a rock?

  2. No one knows as yet the cause of death. So sad that another woman died as a result of some pregnancy related complications. That is one compelling reason for all you men who brutalise women should take stock of what women have to go through before, during and after child birth. Women must not be seen as a sex object on which men could jump on and off as they please and if they can’t have their way, they use force and violence against them. Love thy women with all thine heart.Live as equals and not feel superior to them because of your physical strength.
