Bits : Pregnant Women and Maas Clemmy
On September 27, 1957, two pregnant women who
enter the University College Hospital of the West
Indies in Jamaica are admitted to the same ward
and deliver their boy babies simultaneously. To
their amazement and amusement, the hospital authorities
discover that the mothers live at the same address
and believe it or not the babies have the same
father. (Taken from 'This day in our past' published
in the Jamaica Gleaner.)
Woman is my downfall!' ... Meet Maas Clemmy
again Robert Lalah stumbles upon an interesting
character and produces an great story.
"Yes, woman is my downfall!" he shouted.
"Is woman mek mi come from high up and fall
to nothing. Dem is pure crosses." Maas Clemmy
from Crawl Pen in St. Catherine, Jamaica pours
out his soul and tells how he copes these days.
