A couple from Welkom has exposed their nanny abusing their baby after hiding a nanny cam in their house when they noticed odd behaviour from their child.
The child’s mother said she went shopping with her six-year-old child on December 21, and she set up a camera in her living room where their nanny was left to look after the baby. She reportedly said she previously had a bad experience with a former domestic worker and wanted to see for her own peace of mind how the nanny treated her children when she was not at home.
The video reportedly showed the nanny slapping the baby while he was crying, shoving his head on the floor and pulling him up by his shirt.Charges were then laid against the worker.
She appeared in the Welkom Magistrate’s Court, in the Free State, on December 23 and was released on R1000 bail. She will appear again on January 29.
