Lesbian grows male sexual organ in bed
A lesbian who claimed to have been impregnated by another woman gave birth to a child with a tooth, disparate arms and a crooked leg,
Fungai Manhiko, 21, has named her child, a boy, Fanwell Dube – the surname of her lesbian partner, Elnett.Manhiko made headline news in Bulawayo when she claimed two months ago that she was expecting Dube’s baby.
The couple claimed that Dube grows a male sexual organ when they are together between the sheets, but which disappears after being intimate.
And Dube claims to have no recollection of her sex trysts with Manhiko “as she would be in a trance” which she believes “is a result of mystical powers that bedevil her family”, the Sunday News reported.
Fiercely conservative residents of Bulawayo’s Sizinda suburb – where Manhiko lived until her flight to her rural Masvingo last week – have been gripped by the couple’s bizarre story.
Two weeks ago, Manhiko delivered a healthy baby boy but was stunned to discover the tot had a single tooth, uneven arms and a warped leg.
A local inyanga (traditional healer), Thulani Sibanda, told the Sunday News: “It is possible the ancestors gave the couple the baby to punish them for violating the rules of nature.
“It is taboo for women to sleep together … I can assure you that that tooth is just the beginning of their problems.”
A newly-born baby with a tooth is a rare phenomenon. The tooth usually falls out days after birth, as happened to the lesbian couple’s child.
Medical experts have dismissed Manhiko’s claims that Dube could be the “father” of her child as nonsense.
And challenged by the Sunday News to take a DNA test, Manhiko stormed: “Why should we go for a DNA test? When your parents gave birth to you, did they go for tests? Obviously they did not because your father knew without doubt that you were his seed.
“It’s the same with Elnett, she knows that the baby is hers, in fact, the baby looks like her, he has her eyes and nose. If Elnett and her relatives want a DNA, they are welcome but they will be disappointed with the results.”
The two women are both unemployed, and Manhiko said she feared for the child’s well-being.
“I have no access to good food. A breast-feeding mother needs to eat well, without enough food there is trouble. It’s not healthy for me and the baby. I am not concerned about myself but the baby. He might grow up succumbing to diseases as a result of the impoverished state I am in,” she said, just hours before leaving Bulawayo for rural Masvingo.
