Gosiame Thama Sithole, the South African woman who broke news around the world by claiming to have given birth to 10 children, breaking a world record, has been admitted to the psychiatric ward of a Johannesburg hospital for evaluation after speculation about your pregnancy.
According to the local press, it was all a lie.
The medical evaluation showed that there was no pregnancy. The source also revealed that there are no physical scars indicating a recent caesarean section.
The lawyer revealed that the 37-year-old woman is being “held against her will” in the hospital. “I refused to take her to hospital for a psychiatric evaluation because she feels very strongly that she is in a sound mind,” Reviloy Mokoena told IOL.
“She asked me to accompany her to the hospital. When we arrived they took her straight to Ward 14, the psychiatric department. I was told that she was now being held on them, and that they would not allow the lawyers and team of psychiatrists I requested to attend.”
Sithole’s friend, Tebogo Tsotetsi and presumed father to the children, was the first to announce the birth of 10 children – seven boys and three girls – but a little later revealed that he did not believe in children and that he had not seen the partner since his birth on June 7.
In a statement issued on June 15 on behalf of the family, Tsotetsi said he was the victim of a “scam” and apologized for the false information that was revealed.
