Woman sentenced 17 years in prison for beating a toddler to death with a stick for making a mess with water

 A woman in the Eastern Cape has been sentenced to 17 years in prison after she was found guilty of beating a toddler to death with a stick.

Yesterday The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said Ncedeni Qwabe appeared in the Eastern Cape High Court for causing the death of 19-month-old Qhamokuhle Ndziba.

It's understood the perpetrator had a love affair with the child's uncle and they were taking care of the toddler while her mother was away in Cape Town. July 27 2020 Qwabe assaulted the child with a peach stick because she messed the floor with water while she was being bathed. Initially the perpetrator stated that she only hit her lightly with a cloth. However according Advocate Louis Sinclar, a cross examination showed the child passed away after suffering internal injuries and blood loss.
