A 20-year-old woman, who was arrested for trying to sell her baby on Gumtree for R5 000, will appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

She has already abandoned her bid for bail during her first appearance.

She was arrested in Pietermaritzburg after an undercover agent arranged to buy the 19-month-old baby from her.

The toddler was apparently present when the mother subsequently met with a policewoman and allegedly negotiated the sale of her child.

The woman allegedly said her reason for selling the toddler was because the father was not providing financial support and had questioned the boy’s paternity.

The child was handed to a social worker and the R5 000 was recovered.
