The decuplets came through a caesarian operation even though Sithole’s husband claimed that they were conceived naturally.

The birth of the 10 babies came as a surprise to Sithole and her husband who were expecting eight babies.

Sithole gave birth to her children 29 weeks into the pregnancy, her husband, Tsotetsi, told Pretoria News on Monday night.
