JOHANNESBURG: A couple from Ekurhuleni have been smiling from ear to ear since welcoming the Buthelezi Five, the fifth quintuplets to be born in South Africa since 1960.

Jabulile and Augustine Buthelezi from Sunward Park in Boksburg had the shock of their lives when they arrived at Botshelong Hospital in Vosloorus to deliver three babies and left with quintuplets.

The quintuplets, one boy and four girls, are the fifth quintuplets to be born in South Africa since 1960 and the third since 1994.

Siyanda, Sibahle, Simosihle, Silindile and Sindisiwe Buthelezi were born after 1pm on September 6, just 15 minutes apart through a C-section.

The only boy, Siyanda, arrived first and was closely followed by two sisters, Sibahle and Simosihle. Article: Chulumanco Mahamba, Video: Matthew Van Schalkwyk/ANA
