Caregiver from hell to be sentenced

Dozens of parents trusted her to take care of their toddlers.

But this caregiver spent her days slapping, dragging and even kicking the little ones for no good reason.

South Africa’s caregiver from hell didn’t just spank the bottoms with pants on.

She got the young alleged offenders to drop their pants for a thorough hiding.

It was not uncommon at Ninnies Neuron’s Nursery in Carletonville for this caregiver to slap a child across the face more than once.

The ordeal was captured on camera by another caregiver and shocked the nation.

Last week, the Oberholzer Regional Court found her guilty of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. 

On Tuesday the court heard arguments in aggravation of sentence with a state psychologist saying some children will never shake off the trauma they experienced.

The matter has been postponed to 13 October 13 for the defence to prepare to interrogate the evidence presented by the psychologist.
