Baby Kruger case postponed

2010-10-08 09:26

The case against two men accused of brutally assaulting baby Marzanne Kruger and her nanny Francina Sekhu was postponed by the Johannesburg Magistrates Court today.

The matter was put down for October 18 because the docket was not brought to court. Defence attorneys told the court they had also not received a copy of the docket as was agreed at the previous appearance.

Gerald Nyantumbo (28) and Nelson Maphosa (25) face charges of robbery and attempted murder.

They allegedly assaulted two-year-old Marzanne during a robbery at the Kruger family home in Robindale in April.

The baby temporarily lost her sight as a result of the attack.
