A maid from Zimbabwe employed by a South African family in Midrand, South Africa has been fired after CCTV footage of her breastfeeding the child she was entrusted to look after.
The maid, only identified as Susan had been employed by the Ngubane’s for two years now since little Mike was 2 years old. Ms Ngubane said she got worried when Mike suddenly wanted to suckle her milk jar every night. At first she thought Mike was just missing breast milk and it was a passing phase. ‘But then I started smelling milk on his mouth. Thats is when I got worried and decided to put CCTV images in my house without Susan’s knowledge’
Two days into the CCTV installation, the case of Mike’s milk craving was solved as seen in the picture below, Susan was in the habit of breastfeeding little Mike.
‘When I got home that night to review the camera I immediately fired her’ ,a furious Ms Ngubane narrated. Mike was taken to the doctor’s for a check up and the doctor gave him a clean bill of health.
We tried to contact Susan using her South African number but we could not reach it. Indicating that she might have crossed the border back to Zimbabwe or simply changed her numbers.
