The partner of the woman who claimed she had given birth to decuplets in South Africa says he does not believe the ten children exist.

A statement released by his family in Pretoria said he has made a number of attempts to contact Ms Sithole but has not revealed her location since the apparent world record.

His comments come after speculation grew over Ms Sithole's claims after the hospital where she is claimed to have given birth denied treating her.

The 'mother', 37, is said to have told her boyfriend she gave birth to the babies after midnight on June 8. But Mr Tsotetsi's family said in a statement released on Tuesday: 'Tebogo confirmed he had not seen the deculplets and relied on his girlfriend who called to inform him of their birth.

'He made several attempts to visit his girlfriend and the babies but she has failed to disclose her whereabouts and the condition of her babies.

'The current uncertainties and public disclosure about the decuplets is of major concern to the family, especially in the absence of any proof of the decuplets' existence other than telephonic and WhatsApp messages from the mother.'

The statement concluded with the family saying they believe there are no decuplets until it is proven otherwise as they apologised and appealed for help in finding Ms Sithole.It comes after Mr Tsotetsi earlier asked the public to stop donating money to the alleged mother.

He said in a message, according to Pretoria News: 'I appreciate the financial support that we have been getting from members of the public, but I also would like to appeal to the public to stop making money deposits into our accounts until members of the community have seen the babies.'
