The accused, a Lavender Hill woman, denies ever setting foot in Groote Schuur Hospital at the time of Zephany’s disappearance.
The child was snatched from her sleeping mom’s arms when she was just three days old.
Celeste Nurse said she was haunted by these words, ‘Mommy, where’s your baby,’ for almost 18 years.
It has been an emotional journey for the Nurse family, who are desperate for more details about how their daughter Zephany mysteriously disappeared from her mother’s arms.
The woman accused of kidnapping Zephany is expected to testify today, as her legal team tries to prove her claim that she was under the impression that she had legally adopted Zephany.
She was granted R5,000 bail and is facing charges of kidnapping, fraud and contravening sections of the children’s act.
But the teenager’s biological family have maintained they never gave anyone permission to take their child.
As the state wrapped up its case last week, the accused’s lawyer said he will be calling two or possibly three witnesses to testify.
