What's happening at the courthouse? Foster children and a property scam


Every week, Rameez Khan of Kfm Mornings makes his way to courthouses across Cape Town to hear their stories. This week he spent time at the Paarl Magistrates Court.

There he met with a foster mother whose adoption case has been languishing for 6 years. She explained that the adoption process can take up to 18 years, and biological parents are free to change their minds at any time. It's hard on foster parents but the upside is that the kids are safe and not in the system. 

He also met with another woman who had been scammed when she bought a house for R18,000, 11 years prior. She did not sign any paperwork and the house was never transferred to her name. She's in the midst of sorting out the matter in civil court.
