Baby Named for Police Officer

On February 29, 2008, a Zimbabwean woman who was in labor sought assistance at a police station in Pretoria West (a suburb of Pretoria, one of the three capital cities of South Africa).

While she waited for an ambulance there, she gave birth to a baby girl.

The baby was named Montlhe, after the female police officer that assisted in the delivery.

Another officer mentioned that, because the baby was born on leap day, her birthday would be registered as February 28 instead of February 29.
