South African news headlines have been dominated by the astonishing story of the gauteng couple that produced 10 babies, Gosiame Thamara Sithole and herhusband Teboho Tsotetsi welcomed a record breaking 10 babies on Tuesday (8 June 2021).
However, there was some confusion around the legitimacy of the story as the government could not confirm it after Gauteng government spokesperson Thabo Masebe said that the government didn't find any records of the birth of the decuplets, but fortunately they later confirmed that the story was indeed legitimate.
As South Africans are busy responding to this extraordinary story, the government's failure to confirm the legitimacy of this story exposed something disappointmenting.
This story exposed that the South African government has no means to locate the whereabouts of the country's residents, which raises questions about how they can claim to accurately track and produce daily covid stats that are true.
This incident exposed the fact that the government does not have the capacity to track track and produce accurate daily Covid-19 statistics that are true
The Thembisa decuplets story has exposed that there is no way this government has the capacity to track and produce daily Covid-19 statistics that are true, which means the current statistics that are produced by the Department of Health could be inaccurate and there could be more Covid-19 cases that the government is reporting.
