Dear staff, why does this page attribute to Ntsiki Mashalaba the motherhood of Lerato and Hlumelo Biko, while erasing the presence on Mamphela Ramphele altogether?

this is the original from Wikipedia:
Biko married Ntsiki Mashalaba in 1970.[8] They had two children together: Nkosinathi, born in 1971, and Samora. He also had two children with Dr Mamphela Ramphele (a prominent activist within the BCM): a daughter, Lerato, born in 1974, who died of pneumonia when she was only two months old, and a son, Hlumelo, who was born in 1978, after Biko’s death.[2] Biko also had a daughter with Lorraine Tabane, named Motlatsi, born in May 1977.
