Illegal Alexandra creche to be held criminally liable for negligence – NGO

NGO Women and Men Against Child Abuse is calling for the owner of an illegal Alexandra creche to be held criminally liable for negligence after a two-year-old boy was burned with boiling water.

The toddler’s teacher was suspended after the child sustained severe burns to his buttocks and legs in January. She was formally charged with attempted murder yesterday

The social development department says it’s in the process of closing down the illegal creche, which was never registered.

Its being reported that the principal of the illegal creche not only failed to seek medical care for the child immediately after the abuse but also chose not to report it to the authorities.
