Cape Town - On Tuesday, the ban on identifying Zephany Nurse - who was stolen from a Cape Town hospital when she was a baby - was lifted by the Gauteng High Court, Pretoria.
She asked for the ban on her identity to be lifted to allow for the release of a new book telling her life story. A series of articles about her will also be carried in a well-known Afrikaans magazine.
The public has reacted to the news with either a level of indifference or criticised the move.
Heather Krieger: I do not see the point. Most people who cared to know what her real identity was, have managed to find out and those for whom it was not important, won't be moved by this. Why is this suddenly important?
Noreen Alexander: We don't want or need to know, after all this time! Is she trying to make a quick buck out of this?
Anthea P Daniels (Noreen Alexander) She is writing a book about her life story or rather, has written. It's apparently due to be published soon.
Heather Krieger (Noreen Alexander) to be very honest I would be more interested in reading the biological parents' story. To have your child abducted then eventually found and then practically being rejected would make for some interesting reading.
Atufah Booley Behardien (Heather Krieger) absolutely agree with you. The biological parents have been through so much.
Alicia Eadie (Heather Krieger) well said I feel the same. I also knew her real identity a long time ago.
