Zambian soldier has earned nationwide praise after helping a pregnant woman deliver her baby.
Lance Corporal Humphrey Mangisani was promoted to full corporal for his act.
He had arranged for a motorbike to take the mother to hospital, while he followed on his own bike but she went into labour on the way.
“I had to help her in a maize field while it rained,” Corp Mangisani said. He found a razor blade and cut the umbilical cord.
