Five years imprisonment for mom who gave daughter up following child negligence

The Parow Regional Court has sentenced a mother to five years’ imprisonment, put her daughter up for adoption, banned her from working with children and declared her unfit to own a firearm.

This follows her conviction on charges of child neglect and child abuse, Western Cape National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said in a statement on Wednesday.

The incidents of neglect and abuse took place in 2019. The prosecutor, Colleen de Louw, said the child had bite marks on her body as well as bruises, abrasions and burn marks.

They were initially charged with attempted murder, assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and rape, but they were acquitted on those charges as there was no direct evidence linking them to those charges.
