Case delayed for mom who left kids in car
Johannesburg - The Vereeniging Magistrate’s Court on Monday postponed the case of a woman who allegedly left two of her small children in her parked car outside a shopping mall.
A court official said Shelly Khumalo's case was postponed to January 13.
Khumalo allegedly left a 6-month-old baby and a 2-year-old child in her car outside the River Square shopping centre in December last year, taking her two other children with her.
A car guard notified police and paramedics. A paramedic broke one of the car's windows to get the children out.
When Khumalo returned she allegedly slapped a police officer. She faces charges of child neglect, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
