A woman who recently made international headlines for smashing the world record when she gave birth to 10 babies cannot be found.
The South African government has taken to Twitter in a desperate attempt to find the woman, who they haven’t been able to find anywhere.
The director-general of the government’s communications team said they have been trying to find Gosiame Thamara Sithole, who was reported to have given birth to 10 babies on June 7.
The Mirror on Tuesday covered how Gosiame, from Tembisa in the municipality of Erkulheni, gave birth to the seven boys and three girls through C-section and at 29 weeks.
They babies were said to have been naturally conceived, which is a rarity in such cases where so many babies are born out of a single pregnancy.

The 37-year-old was claimed to have won the record for the greatest number of babies delivered from Halima Cisse of Mali, who had nine kids in May.
Gosiame was said to be unaware she was due 10 babies as doctors giving her a scan twice got the number wrong, telling her first she was expecting six and then eight.
The feat, however, has not been confirmed by doctors or the Guinness World Records.
