NGO to help parents open cases following Carletonvile creche abuse

Child protection nongovernmental organisation (NGO) Women & Men Against Child Abuse (WAMCA) says at least five mothers who claim their children were assaulted at Carletonville's Ninnie's Neurons nursery school say they have been denied an opportunity to open individual cases.

Last month, a teacher who was captured on video assaulting children at the creche was arrested and charged with the assault of a minor.

Founding director Miranda Jordan says the mothers were given the runaround by the Family Violence Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit in the area.

Jordan held a meeting with the mothers on Friday to address concerns surrounding the case.

We have mothers who came to the meeting today who had been wanting to open separate cases against the woman pictured hitting and forcing down children. But it seems the Carletonville FCS want to make these part of the case that was opened by the creche owner against the woman.

The mothers are saying they want to have their own cases opened.

There are concerns and very serious allegations that came out today from at least five mothers about abuse that had happened to their children.

They are somehow been given the runaround. I have come personally with them here... I complained to the captain that I was going to be speaking to 702 and we have now only been promised that their statements will be taken at the Carletonville police station.

The case is set to be heard on Tuesday.
