Dar es Salaam โ€” A woman left unable to have children after a defective caesarean section operation in Tanzania has won a landmark case against a local hospital whose surgeon left a piece of cloth inside her.

Mwamini Adam and her husband filed a lawsuit at the high court in western Tabora region against Urambo District Council’s hospital four years ago, demanding 500 million Tanzanian Shillings ($265,000) for physical and emotional distress.
