A 55-year-old South-African woman, MAMASHI Oageng, from Khotsong Kasi in Bothaville, Free State, who bum started growing six years ago and it didn’t seem to be going to stop is now seeking medical attention, as she told Daily Sun that many TV channels had ran stories about her problem, but she’s yet to find a solution.
According to her, she’s trapped in her bedroom because she had trouble walking.
She further revealed that when People’s Paper first published her story in 2013, all she got were marriage proposals from men around the world.
“I don’t want a poking partner. I need someone to save me from my backside before it’s too late,” she said.
“Life is not easy and sometimes, I feel like giving up.
“I have been to many doctors but they say they can’t help me. I believe I’m cursed!”
Mamashi said her bum had grown so big that she can’t walk properly and she spends most of her time lying in bed and waiting for someone to feed and bath her.
“My health isn’t good because of my big behind. Four years ago, I could still walk outside and catch a taxi to where I needed to go,” she said.
“Passengers and neighbours call me all sorts of names like Sarah Baartman and I cry myself to sleep.”
Mamashi said she was a beautiful woman with a nice figure six years ago.
“The problem started when I gained weight. Even when I went on a diet, the kilograms still piled up on my bum. I need a doctor who can help me.”
