The South African government says it has been unable to verify media reports that a South African woman had given birth to 10 babies.
A couple of weeks back, Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, who lives in Gauteng, claimed that she gave birth to ten babies at 29 weeks of pregnancy.
The government of Gauging Province released a statement on Twitter confirming that they could not find any record of Gosiame Thamara Sithole giving birth to decuplets, seven boys and three girls, even after a thorough check with all the hospitals in the city.
“None of the hospitals in the province, public and private, have any record of such a delivery in their facilities,” the statement read.
Gosiame earlier claimed that she entered the Guinness World Records list after delivering 10 children at the same time.
The father, Tebogo Tsotetsi, along with his family released a statement as well.
Tsotetsi claims that he is yet to see the newborns and relies on Sithole for updates on their condition.
According to the statement, Tebogo made several attempts to visit his girlfriend and the babies but she has failed to disclose her whereabouts and the condition of their babies.
