- Ms Anita Dembo confessed that chimpanzee slept with her when she was a conservation officer at Parc National de Cameia, Angola
- The 12-year-old boy known as an offspring of a human-chimpanzee love affair is now a “National treasure”
A “product” of human-chimpanzee love affair has been named “Angolan Miracle Child” by President João Lourenço.
Also known as “National treasure”, “a sign from God” and a “testament to the majesty and greatness of the Republic of Angola,” the mother of a 12-year-old boy Anita Dembo did confess before her death that she had a sexual relationship with a chimpanzee at a park in the country.
It was revealed that Anita Dembo had many years of “affair” with chimp which produced the boy known as offspring of the woman-chimpanzee love affair
Anita Dembo was a conservation officer since 1998 at Parc National de Cameia before she died.
Anita later got pregnant during the affair which resulted in the birth of her son. The genetic makeup of the Angolan boy is being disputed by experts, though.
Experts are disputing the claim that he is the product of the sexual intercourse between a human and a chimpanzee.
A medical expert António Mendes of the Hospital Municipal do Luena was quoted as saying, “Sexual relationships between humans and chimpanzees are fairly common in the region but this is the first time a pregnancy is officially reported.”
The boy, an offspring of the human-chimpanzee love affair, has become an instant celebrity.
Minister of Science and Technology, Maria Cândida Teixeira, said, “This discovery could even challenge the basic foundations of modern science.”
A spokesperson from the Parc national de Cameia who regretted the death of Anita Dembo stated that “Any sexual interaction between employees or visitors of the park with animals is not encouraged behaviour under current park guidelines.”
