In Namibia, a nanny is facing charges of attempted murder, after she was allegedly caught on camera violently throwing a baby into a cot. 

The child’s mother, Annemarie Theron, had set up a hidden camera in her home after she noticed bruises on her nine-month-old daughter, Laila’s neck, shoulders and under her feet. 

Laila had been in the care of her nanny since May this year. Footage captured by the camera appears to show the family’s nanny manhandling the tot, tossing her into her cot like a rag doll. 

Devastated mum Annemarie told news websites Netwerk24 & Rekord: “It was very emotional watching it. I refused to sleep, eat or drink for a couple of days afterward. It’s difficult to imagine how long this has been going on for. 

I can see Laila is so, so broken after everything. In July, I had noticed some marks under Laila’s feet but never suspected our nanny. In August, I noticed my baby had marks on her arms and neck.

This was when I started to monitor the situation closely. In the beginning of September, my husband, Johan was home for two days. He told me that Laila feared our nanny.” 

Hence, the Theron family decided to install cameras. A friend assisted Annemarie in downloading an application that allowed her to see the footage from her phone. Annemarie and her husband Johan informed police and the nanny was arrested on Friday. 

She appeared in court on Monday to face charges of child abuse, assault and attempted murder. She was denied bail and remanded in custody until October. 📹: Rekord
