South African Woman who claimed to have given birth to 10 babies admitted to psychiatric ward

Published

on

Earlier this month, it was reported South African woman Gosiame Sithole gave birth to 10 babies in Thembisa, a small town near Johannesburg. According to media publication Independent Online, Sithole lived with the alleged father of the children Tebogba Tsotetsi.  The couple attended church in a nearby area where they revealed in May, they were expecting eight babies.

Already the mother of 6-year-old twins, Gosiame revealed to Tsotetsi through text message that she is expecting 10 babies instead of 8 but he was not allowed to be present during the delivery of the children due to corona virus restrictions.

The alleged pregnancy garnered the attention of the local Mayor and media outlets such as Pretoria News and world-renowned BBC. The babies were immediately dubbed “Thembisa 10” while the couple received donations as much as “1M rand” which is equivalent to $72,000 USD or $420,000 cedis.

About 10 days later, the story drew suspicion after the couple failed to disclose the hospital where the babies were born and no hospital in Thembisa had any record of the babies being born.

While Pretoria News accused Mr. Tsotetsi of wanting to benefit of financially from the babies, Tsotetsi claims he had no knowledge of the scam and was also a victim of Sithole’s lies. Tsotetsi and his family has concluded that there are no babies born between him and his former partner and would like to apologize for any inconvenience or embarrassment this has caused. He has also asked people to stop their donations.

It is unclear why the 37-year-old woman fabricated the story but according to reports, social workers were able to track down Sithole, she was immediately admitted into a South African hospital for psychiatric evaluation.

UPNMG Refutes Malicious Claims Made Against Its Leadership

Published

on

The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana (UPNMG) has
refuted some malicious claims made against the association’s
leadership.

This comes after a wrier on Opera News with the name OBENFOBRIGHT, who
claimed to be a former member of the UPNMG and amongst many other
things, alleged that the Union doesn’t assist its members who fall
sick.

However, in a statement, the leadership of the UPNMG vehemently
refuted the claims, describing them as malicious.

“We want to state emphatically that, the faceless individual who could
not reveal his identity has never been a member of the UPNMG and
obviously knows nothing about the activities of the union but is
rather on a fruitless mission to destroy the hard-earned reputation
built by the organization over the years to satisfy his pay masters,”
a section of the statement said.

Meanwhile, the UPNMG went ahead to outline some of the intervention
schemes it has rolled out for its members.

“The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana is the first
trade Union within our noble profession to have instituted a loan
scheme for members and this loan is running at 11%.

“Anyone who speaks ill of this initiative must definitely beconsidered
an enemy of the profession because this has been a life-saving policy
that has helped thousands of Nurses and Midwives across this country.
Interestingly, they are now saying the interest rate is high when they
initially said it wasn’t even possible to run such a scheme for
members less than a year ago.

The statement added: “Apart from the loan scheme, the Union is again
the first to commence a hire purchase for members and that has been
running since its inception in May 2020. Again, we can boast of being
the first ever union within our profession to insure all our members
at no extra cost. That means no members pay any extra money for this
insurance policy.

“The union behind these malicious claims has been in existence for the
past 60 years and has done nothing for nurses and midwives. Our
presence has since kept the kitchen boiling and has made life very
uncomfortable for them, and hence these calculated attempts to dirty
the name of the union.”
