Gugu Msimanga was happy and shocked when she was told she was pregnant with triplets.
She expected her partner to share her joy, but he dumped her after she told him.
The 29-year-old from Zamane in Duduza, Ekurhuleni, told the publication: “He told me to go as he couldn’t afford to look after that many kids.”
Gugu is now struggling to care for her babies, who are three months old. She said her ex-lover had already moved on and was living with another woman.
“I don’t know if he will keep running if she also gets pregnant. I love my kids but I have to see to things like them getting milk every day and buying nappies,” she said.
Gugu appealed to the public for donations to help her look after her babies.
She said she used to live in a rented room, but she had to move out as she couldn’t afford to pay for it any more. She moved in with her gogo, Nobelungu Khumalo (67).
Gugu said her gogo’s RDP was very small and they had to push together two sofas so she could sleep with her baby girls – Amahle, Sphesihle and Sibahle.
“It’s uncomfortable but I have no choice. My gogo took me in because she couldn’t leave me on the street,” she said.
Gogo Nobelungu said the babies were healthy but they needed formula because their mum was not breastfeeding them.
“It’s nice to see them growing well, but we’re appealing for help.
“She’s not working and we survive on my pension grant.”
Gugu said she stopped breastfeeding her babies because she was not coping with it.
“I love my children and I will not abandon them just because their father decided to leave me,” she said.
“He was not happy about the pregnancy from the start.
“I could see he started acting cold towards me.”
