A mum alleges her baby daddy took his anger out on their baby. He allegedly beat up their one-month-old daughter! The 21-year-old mum from Mamelodi in Tshwane said her daughter’s face was now swollen.
But this was allegedly not the first time her boyfriend (31) beat up the baby,
She claimed he once did it when she was three days old.
“I was bathing when he entered the house and started beating the baby all over the face,” she said.
“His reason was that she was making a lot of noise and he wanted to teach her respect.
“He told me the child should be taught a lesson while still young.”
The mum said she took her daughter to Mamelodi Regional Hospital, where the doctor said she was fine.
She said her boyfriend should pay for what he did.
“I want him in jail. He should have told me to leave if he didn’t love us and not hurt my baby,” she said.
“I don’t love him anymore and will not forgive him for what he did.
“My boyfriend doesn’t smoke dagga or drink alcohol and claims he’s a Christian.”
Her mum (46) said it was sad how the man beat up the baby.
“We want him to be arrested and to pay for what he did to my granddaughter,” said the kid’s gogo.
Concerned resident Edwin Matsepe (52) said: “We want the man to be arrested and removed from the community.
“He’s violent and could have killed the baby.”
Gauteng police spokesman Captain Mavela Masondo said a case of assault was opened.
“No arrests have been made yet and investigations continue,” he said
