    Default Ten babies?

    Where they?

    First reported by Piet Rampedi of Rogue unit fame working for IOL.

    Shapiro's take...

    I have been following this story a bit and apparently no one saw the babies yet. We live in SA so for me seeing is believing.

    As we say here about other things: if you haven't posted a picture, it did not happen.

    Struggling to make sense of why Piet Rampedi thought nobody would figure out that this never happened in the first place.

    This story has more plot holes than a bad movie.

    Anyone got a theory on why such a claim would be made? Money? Fame?

    And why did the initial articles state it broke the Guinness World Record? Surely someone from the Guinness books would have been there to verify it? Or was it just clickbait from the media?

    Ja, clickbait is my best guess.

    But they didn't reckon it would get this amount of attention, and scrutiny. It is just the most babies anyone has delivered ever, why would anyone ask for proof...? The kicker for me is that this happened just a couple of weeks after the world was interested in the mother who had 9 babies somewhere else in Northern Africa.

    Iqbal: "Well, if that lady can have 9 babies in the North, surely, we can have a mother here in the south that delivers 10 babies"

    "Piet, 10 babies will quickly lead to traffic to the site. Let's write something up"

    When Pretoria News broke the story last week, it included a call for donations and bank account details were published, along with addresses for donation drop-offs.
    The addresses included the offices of Independent Media (which owns Pretoria News), Pretoria News' own offices in Pretoria, and the Lesedi 7 Group in Lyndhurst, Johannesburg.

    I'm old enough (sigh) the remember this, I think a few people here probably are :

    https://www.sbs.com.au/news/insight/...ing-sextuplets

    Consider how different the stories are.

    I reckon this is a BS story and the folks who perpetrated it weren't aware of how much interest it would stir up. If this is the case, I hope the consequences are dire.

    Also indicates how rubbish Independent's reporting is.

    Also, Rampedi along with wa Afrika were responsible for the SARS rogue unit reporting in the Sunday times. As far as I am concerned he has zero credibility.

    They exist! It is a government cover up! (Says the newspaper who did the initial report )

    I now see the mother has been detained by police and sent for psychiatric evaluation.

    This story is getting really weird.

    I am most curious about this aspect of this bizarre story:

    Any babies more than triplets involve fertility treatment. Nobody accidentally has 10 babies as a normal low risk pregnancy. The birth weight of each baby would have been a risk in an of itself.

    A pregnancy like that would never casually rock up at a government hospital like Steve Biko because it would present a teaching opportunity of note as well as material for a paper or three.

    Add to that, IF they born, they would required specialist care. Everybody will know

    So yesterday News24 came into possession of an internal Independent Newspapers email where Piet Rampedi wrote to his colleagues, admitting that he had accepted the story on face value from members of the family.

    He apologized for his actions - Oh yippee.

    Not so fast.

    He only apologized for the way his story put into doubt the credibility of journo's. He is still adamant that the women was pregnant and gave birth....
