DURBAN – The Department of Social Development has refuted claims that the woman who gave birth to 10 babies earlier this week is missing.
“The Gauteng Department of Social Development would like to confirm that the mother of the tenfolds is not missing. She has contacted the Gauteng Department of Social Development and the department will make an announcement in due course,” the department said in a statement released this evening. . .
He said the provincial SAPS has been notified.
The ministry added that it would not be interviewing until it was ready to do so.
This week, Pretoria News reported that 37-year-old Gosiame Thamara Sithole had given birth to her tenfolds – two more than doctors had previously detected during medical examinations – at a Pretoria hospital.
Sithole, originally from Tembisa township in Ekurhuleni, gave birth to her seven boys and three daughters by Caesarean section.
Sithole, who has six-year-old twins, previously told Pretoria News her pregnancy was natural because she was not undergoing fertility treatment.
