Shock as South African mother who allowed gangsters to rape and torture her 2-year-old daughter is sentenced to only 5 years imprisonment



There was shock and disbelief in court when a South African mother who was found guilty of allowing gangsters to rape and torture her two-year-old daughter, nicknamed Baby Nadia, was sentenced to only five years in prison.



The 27-year-old mother, who cannot be named to protect her child’s identity, alongside her friend, Ursula Paste, 32, were sentenced at the Parow Regional Court, Cape Town on Tuesday, July 20.



Baby Nadia’s mother was sentenced to five years for child abuse and another five years for child neglect, however the sentences will run concurrently.



The Magistrate sentenced Paste to five years in prison, adding she could be released in just 10 months for good behaviour.



After being on trial for over two years, both were found guilty after the child was rescued from a drug den in 2019. They were charged with rape, attempted murder, child abuse and assault but were only found guilty of child abuse while the mother faced an additional charge of child neglect. This was due to no evidence linking them directly to the injuries on the child.



The discovery by Debbie van Rensburg, 56, and her son Cisco, 27, sparked an uproar when it was revealed that the little girl had been raped, her genitals burnt, her tiny body bitten and her hair cut.



None of the men who abused the child had been arrested as the two women have refused to name them.
