The 24-year-old suspect allegedly left her three children with no food and very few clothes.
CAPE TOWN - A 24-year-old woman has been arrested for child neglect in Pacaltsdorp after her three children were found with no food and hardly any clothes.
The police's Bernadine Steyn says the children, between the ages of two and eight, had been left in the care of their physically disabled grandmother.
Steyn says the children were growing up in unsuitable living conditions and have been placed in foster care.
"Upon arrival, they found the kids in the care of their 65-year-old grandmother who is physically impaired. The children were partially clothed, had no food and were living under unhealthy conditions."
