Dr. Aisha Maina, the medical superintendent of Nakuru Level Five Hospital, said that the survival odds for five neonates delivered in Nakuru County on February 1 were very low since they were underweight and immature.


The doctor also told TV47 that the babies' weight meant that their internal organs hadn't fully developed yet.


The babies weighed between 500 and 650 grams, according to the hospital.


The five were indeed born early, since their mother, Margaret Wairimu, gave birth to them when she was seven months pregnant.


As a result, the four girls and one boy had to be put on life support after delivery by the facility's medical staff.


But the infants died on Thursday, February 5, only 24 hours after they were delivered.


The woman was taken to the hospital right away, where doctors kept an eye on her until she gave birth and had to have an emergency cesarean section.


The doctor said at the time, "The kids were delivered with relatively low weights since the pregnancy was at seven months."


The birth of the five children made headlines on Wednesday as their matatu driver father, Simon Ndung'u, begged Kenyans for assistance.


"I'm asking for help from well-wishers," the father pleaded. "Her most recent scan revealed that she was expecting three infants, but an additional two have arrived at delivery."
