"#NationalBabyShower when are we presenting gifts?We are here for the baby shower cake"
"Guys come on, who agrees R10 for 10 babies. Like this tweet if you like the idea. So that the family don't suffer financially"
Cleared up confusion
Mzwandile Masina, ANC Ekurhuleni Regional Chairperson and Mayor of Ekurhuleni, has taken to Twitter to shed some light on his earlier statement that there was no evidence to prove that a Gauteng mom had birthed 10 babies in a Pretoria hospital.
According to his tweet, government officials have been able to track down the family that welcomed 10 babies into the world earlier this week and in doing so, broke a world record.
"Dear @mirriamp we’ve found the family and we are informed babies are well. I will share the information with National Gov, I know we were a joke yesterday when Gov was genuinely looking for family. Some of our local comrades have been assisting this family. So we are good OK."
