The High Court in Pretoria has ordered an investigation into how best to deal with a recent discovery that two children were allegedly mistakenly swopped at birth in an East Rand hospital in 2010, The Star newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The two girls were born in Boksburg Hospital.

The mistake was discovered recently when one of the fathers requested a paternity test after the child's mother sued him for maintenance.

The paper reported that both parents' blood tests did not match the child's.

The woman then reportedly wanted her biological child back, but the other woman did not want to give her daughter up, The Star reported.

The Centre for Child Law was tasked with investigating the facts and to make a decision on what was in the best interests of the children.

It was not yet clear how the children were allegedly swopped.
