NATIONAL NEWS - The woman who took a video of her colleague allegedly abusing a toddler for vomiting at a creche in Carletonville has reportedly been arrested and is expected to appear in court next week.
The woman is expected to appear together with her colleague in the Oberholzer Magistrates’ Court on May 7, reported News24.
The woman came into the spotlight last month after Ninnie’s Neurons Nursery School principal Janine Edward’s lawyer made allegations that “a disgruntled former employee” had threatened and blackmailed her. Daniel van Zyl claimed the former employee had demanded money from Edward if she wanted to stop her from releasing the videos.
Van Zyl told TimesLive: “She contacted Mrs Edward, the principal, and notified her that she’s got some videos of other teachers assaulting the children in the school. She threatened and also blackmailed Mrs Edwards that she would send these videos. This happened approximately a year ago.”
However, this only angered South Africans further, with most saying the claims took nothing away from the abuse children suffered at the hands of those they trusted.
The woman who was filmed was also arrested and appeared in the Oberholzer Magistrates’ Court in Carletonville on 28 March on a charge of assaulting a minor.
She was released on bail and will appear again in May.
