JOHANNESBURG - The abuse case of 40-year-old Nellie Senwametsi, who was caught on camera viciously beating three toddlers under her care at the Ninnie Neurons crèche in Carletonville, was on Friday escalated to the Regional Court.
The shocking video of the beating of the innocent and defenceless toddlers went viral in April and immediately caused an uproar.
Senwametsi was arrested but has since been released on bail.
On Friday the toddlers parents and grandparents as well as concerned residents picketed outside court. They carried "bruised" dolls which represented what the accused did to their children.
They also carried scrubbing brushes, such as the one seen in the video being used by Senwametsi to hit one of the children.
