During a recent radio interview Louis Pasteur Private Hospital in Pretoria denied claims it delivered decuplets (10 babies). This was following an initial interview KFM did during the Clement Manyathela Show, where the CEO of the Steve Biko Academic Hospital, Mathabo Mathebula said that a woman who claimed to have given birth to 10 babies more than a week ago, arrived at the public facility on Saturday, informing them that she was told to wait there for her decuplets to be transferred. Confusion around the decuplets continues to grow as no one has confirmed the births of the babies or has seen them a week after they were born.
In a statement issued on Tuesday evening, the Tsotetsi family said, “Tebogo Tsotetsi confirmed that he has not seen the decuplets and relied on his girlfriend Gosiame Sithole who called to inform him of their birth. He made several attempts to visit his girlfriend and the babies but she has failed to disclose her whereabouts and the condition of their babies.
Michael Sadiki is the spokesperson for the Louis Pasteur Private Hospital, said that they had no record of a patient by the name of Gosiame Sithole or 10 babies being delivered.
“I’ve just verified and we don’t have the patient and we don’t have 10 babies – we’ve never delivered 10 babies at Louis Pasteur Hospital. I don’t know where the story came from but I can confirm that it is not true.”
