Fact Check: South African woman’s story of giving birth to 10 babies at once is fake
An official investigation has uncovered that a South African woman’s claim of giving birth to 10 babies earlier last year but one was untrue. Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, from Gauteng province, had gained global attention for her assertion of breaking the world record for having 10 babies.
However, no hospitals in Gauteng province have any records of decuplets being born, and medical tests have shown that Sithole was not even pregnant recently. Consequently, she has been admitted to a psychiatric facility and is under monitoring due to the fabrication of her claim.
The investigation did not reveal the reasons behind her false narrative. Independent Online (IOL) initially reported the world record claim, which was then widely covered by various media outlets worldwide. The Tsotetsi family, involved in the claim, publicly stated that there were no decuplets born between Tebogo Tsotetsi and Gosiame Sithole. Additionally, legal action is being pursued against the news outlet that published the original article, according to the provincial government.
