"Tell us where the babies are" - that's what Pretoria News editor Piet Rampedi and Independent Media now want from government after reporting last week - as fact - that a Tembisa woman had given birth to decuplets. 

Authorities have questioned where Gosiame Thamara Sithole delivered the 10 babies. Private and public health facilities have repeatedly said they had no record of the births at any of their institutions.
