A three-year-old boy in South Africa has been reportedly killed by his nanny.

Mpendulo Mkhwane was thrown away by his own mum and his aunt took him to her niece in rural Jolivet near Highflats to raise him to act as his nanny.

Angry residents said they were shocked by the incident that saw Mpendulo allegedly die after being abused by his nanny.

Residents claimed the nanny beat Mpendulo after he relieved himself at the back of the house.

They said they heard Mpendulo screaming uncontrollably while being followed by the 31-year-old nanny.

When they asked where she was taking the child, she said she was going to the nearby clinic.

Some residents decided to follow them.

They said they discovered that Mpendulo had been injured in his face and that there was blood all over his clothes.

When they confronted the nanny, she allegedly said Mpendulo had injured himself but when the little boy succumbed to his severe injuries on Monday, they demanded answers.



"The nanny then confessed that she had beaten Mpendulo. We called the cops," said Mandla Mzobe.

"We don't want the suspect in the area as she has not acted like a parent or a guardian. We believe she punched the child in the face. She must be locked away because she is cruel," Mandla said.

Mpendulo's aunt Keshe Mkhwane (30) said the nanny was a relative of hers.

"I live in Durban. I paid her to look after Mpendulo," she said.

She said she learnt through neighbours that the nanny had allegedly been abusive towards Mpendulo.

She added that she noticed bruises on his body when she visited over the Easter holidays. "When I asked her about the bruises, she said the child had been injured while playing outside," Keshe said.

"That poor child never felt love all his life. First my younger sister, his mother, deserted him and then I gave him to someone who abused him to death. I am heartbroken about this," said Keshe.

The nanny was arrested.

Police spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker said a murder case is being investigated.
