Ex­er­cise in cru­elty

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

A CASE against the par­ents of a 10-year-old girl who was al­legedly forced to ex­er­cise ex­ces­sively has been post­poned to Jan­uary 17.

The mother, 38, and her hus­band, 31 – the girl’s step­fa­ther – face charges of at­tempted mur­der and child ne­glect.

In an in­ci­dent in Oc­to­ber last year the girl al­legedly had to swim con­tin­u­ously in the Krugers­drift Dam, out­side Bloem­fontein, while her par­ents watched from the side.

When the girl was tired of swim­ming, she was al­legedly as­saulted and forced to swim again. The child is now in fos­ter care. – Sapa
