Netcare reiterated that no patient with a multiple pregnancy of eight or more fetuses had ever been admitted to any of its hospitals, including Netcare Sunninghill Hospital.
This is in response to independent media chairman Iqbal Survé’s claim that Gosiame Sithole, the mother of the so-called tenfolds, had visited several hospitals in Gauteng, including Netcare Sunninghill Hospital.
In a press release, the general manager of the hospital division of Netcare, Jacques du Plessis, indicates that in addition to rechecking hospital records, management has checked with all the independent gynecologists and obstetricians practicing in the establishment that none of their practices have seen a patient or done a CT scan showing a multiple pregnancy of eight or more fetuses.
But an Independent Media Group investigative report claims the ‘tenfolds’ were indeed born but trafficked out of the country.
In June this year, claims emerged of a record 10 babies being born, but the claims were dismissed as fake news.
Investigations by the Independent Media Group now claim to reveal that the tenfold’s mother was indeed pregnant and had a C-section.
Dr Survé says: “There is an independent private obstetrician who examined the mother after her release and showed that she was clearly recently pregnant and had recently had a Caesarean section. We have plenty of evidence, all of which is in the press release. »
