Teboho Tsotetsi, the father of the renowned decuples fondly known as the Tembisa 10, whose wife Gosiame Sithole has refused to divulge her location or the status of their children, has begged the public to stop depositing money into both their bank accounts until she returns.
The National Baby Shower campaign appears to have spread beyond social media, with contributions for the Tembisa 10.
“I appreciate the financial support that we have been getting from members of the public, but I also would like to appeal to the public to stop making money deposits into our accounts until members of the community have seen the babies,” Tsotetsi said in a WhatsApp message to IOL.
He went on to say that Sithole had left him with her twins, who are presently residing at his mother’s house in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, and are equally anxious about her whereabouts and safety. Sithole stated that while he was caring for them, they, too, missed their mother.
According to Pretoria News Sithole had given birth to ten infants at a private hospital in Pretoria on Monday night. Tsotetsi revealed at the time that his wife informed him that the decuplets – seven boys and three girls – were born 29 weeks into her pregnancy. However, the medical staff advised him that no visitors were allowed.
But their existence was confirmed by Mayor. At this stage the babies are still small they might even spend 3 month at Hospital before going home. As for the mother(its a sensitive family matter) 1st wife involved and post natal depression (maybe) space is needed for her.
