“The God of Asunta”-HIV Positive activist Asunta Wagura beaming with joy after welcoming Newborn twins at 60 years

Upon entering nursing college in the late 1980s, Asunta Wagura harbored aspirations of a promising future within the nursing profession.

Little did she know that her educational journey would abruptly halt in the most undignified manner following her diagnosis with HIV/AIDS, one of the most feared illnesses of that era.

In a candid interview with CNN in 2011, she disclosed the harsh reality of not only battling the disease but also facing rejection from her own family. They accused her of squandering their hard-earned school fees and subsequently contracting HIV.

“I was informed, ‘Asunta, I regret to inform you, you have AIDS.’ And then, they proceeded to tell me, ‘Now that you’re dying, we will not retain you in this institution… go back and depart’,” she recounted to CNN.

Even more heart-wrenching was the rejection she faced from her own mother.

“As I packed my belongings at the college, she remarked, ‘Well, this is it, regardless of whether you survive or not, you must ensure you repay me what it cost to send you to this college.’ And this was merely about 20 minutes after the revelation of my HIV status, leaving me to ponder, ‘Is this coming from my own mother?'” she questioned.

Fast forward over 30 years later, Wagura’s narrative has undergone a remarkable transformation, now marked by joy as she welcomes twin daughters just a few months shy of turning 60.

In a heartfelt statement shared on Facebook, Wagura described it as a “tale of unexpected joy and twin delights.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves for a story that might just sweep you off your feet! This year, my life took a surprising turn worthy of a Hollywood script—yes, at nearly 60, I’ve been blessed with twin daughters! It’s a plot twist I never saw coming, and one that still feels surreal!” she exclaimed.

“While some may have speculated, others doubted, but now the truth is clear: miracles don’t always knock; sometimes, they burst in with a glorious, uproarious entrance, leaving me with a heart so full it could illuminate the night sky. To say I’m ecstatic would be an understatement; I’m beyond elated!”

Blessed with two daughters in her later years, Wagura views it as a divine miracle, filling her with immense happiness.

Wagura’s case is indeed unique, as at her age, she is likely to have undergone menopause, marking the end of her reproductive years. Menopause typically occurs between 45 and 55 years for women worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

“Just when I thought my story was set in stone, life handed me a rewrite brimming with laughter, diapers, and two precious princesses. I rejoice wholeheartedly. Now, I understand what some of you might be thinking: ‘Twins? At your age?’ Indeed, as I approach the milestone of 60, many might believe this stage of life is better suited for quiet weekends and early bird specials, not late-night feedings and lullabies. But how wonderfully mistaken they are!” Wagura exclaimed.

“To those skeptics, I refer to the wisdom of the ancient Stoics, who remind us that ‘Fortune favors the bold,’ and truly, boldness has never felt more rewarding. Marcus Aurelius himself could not have anticipated such joyful fortune when he pondered, ‘The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.'”

In her earlier years, Wagura was an advocate, inspiring those living with HIV to embrace life positively. However, as she aged, her activism waned.

“To all those holding onto a dream, feeling it may be too late or too improbable, remember my story. The God of Asunta, in His wisdom and whimsy, does not adhere to our earthly conventions. May He meet you at your point of need, and may your dreams find their blissful twilight,” she added.

“Welcome to the world, my two princesses, who have graciously turned this seasoned tale into an exhilarating new chapter! Let us raise a toast (perhaps of warm milk?): to unexpected blessings, to life’s boundless laughter, and to the delightful chaos of parenthood, no matter the season,” she concluded.
