Since finding out about the birth of the babies, various government departments have been in search of the missing decuplet mom.
A missing persons case has reportedly been opened, due to the fact that no one can find missing decuplet mom Gosiame Thamara Sithole (37).
According to a report published by News24, Sithole was last seen on her way to Esangweni Clinic in Tembisa on 6 June 2021, after her water broke. Water breaking is often considered a sign that an expectant mother’s labour has begun.
The case is said to have been opened on Friday. At the time of writing, media liaisons from the South African Police Service were still verifying whether the police are indeed looking for Sithole.
On Thursday evening, a Citizen report revealed that the missing decuplet mom and Teboho Tsotetsi were not married as previously reported, but that Tsotetsi had allegedly been cheating on his wife with Sithole.
Decuplets’ mother shunned by family, ‘may have been an affair’
On Friday, his real wife, Sibongile Gxekwa (47) came forward to publicly express her pain. She has since been unreachable by phone.
Her family has expressed their concern for her well-being as she has had to watch her husband conduct interviews over a matter she reportedly did not know about.
Sources close to the missing decuplet mom told The Citizen that she had told them she had no idea where exactly she and the babies were. She had, however, expressed her wish to be discharged.
Since finding out about the birth of the babies earlier this week, various government departments have been in search of the missing decuplet mom in an effort to provide her with whatever she may need. To date, they have been unsuccessful in locating her.
