The two boys and two girls born to Inganathi Mafenuka would finally go home after spending eight weeks in the Tygerberg Hospital.

According to the Daily Sun, the quadruplets were kept in the hospital for two months after their birth on 6 July because they were born premature.

"Two of the four weighed in at under one kilogram," SABC reported, adding, "Weeks later they have gained significant weight and have developed well, thanks to consistent breastfeeding."

However, the four siblings are finally strong enough to go home with their IT student mom. According to reports, doctors believe the babies would be able to go home come Monday.
