JOHANNESBURG - The Centre for Child Law has 90 days to investigate how two babies were switched at birth and what would be the best solution for them now, almost four years later.

Two Gauteng mothers recently discovered their daughters had been swapped at the Tambo Memorial Hospital on the East Rand in 2010.

He denied paternity, resulting in a DNA test which confirmed neither parent was related to the child.

One of the mothers now wants her biological daughter back, while the other wants to keep her child forcing the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria to intervene.

The centre's Zita Hansungule says Professor Ann Skelton will be heading the investigation.

"During this time she is going to put a report together and set out what has come out of this investigation and any recommendations she would be making. The job now is to look at the current circumstances of the children."
