Mom in court for abuse

A 23-year-old mother of two appeared before the Bultfontein Magistrate’s Court on Friday, 13 September, for abusing her toddler.

On Wednesday, 11 September, the Bultfontein police were summoned to the Nala District Hospital where they found a three-year-old girl with bruises on her back.

The mother was interviewed regarding the child’s bruises but could not give a satisfactory explanation as to what had happened to the child. The mother was arrested.

Her case has been post­poned to Monday, 21 October, for further investigation.

“The police would like to send a stern warning to young mothers, to please refrain from abusing their children as they will face the might of the law and further be convicted.

“They should rather seek professional help when they face difficulties in raising their children or providing for them, than taking out their anger at the children and hurt them,” says Capt. Stephen Thakeng, police spokesperson of the Welkom Cluster.
