Court orders continued blood transfusion for 3-year-old boy against mother’s wish

THE Lusaka High Court has ordered that a three-year-old boy suffering from sickle cell anaemia continues to receive blood at UTH against his mother’s religious belief and opposition to the procedure.
Muyeka further submitted that Nakamba’s refusal was unreasonable and vexatious, hence seeking an order to be granted to compel her to allow blood transfusion on their child.
