A nanny is expected to appear in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court in connection with the murder of a 21-month-old toddler who she had been caring for.
Mannana Tshabane, 39, was arrested for allegedly strangling the boy and hiding his body in a closet, and then claiming that he had been abducted, Sowetan reported.
Tshabane claimed she and the toddler had been poisoned by intruders, but toxicology reports have since disproved this, according to Sowetan.
The post-mortem report reportedly indicated that Lihle had been strangled.
Tshabane is facing a charge of murder.
