A South African family trusted a nanny to look after their toddler but instead, the baby died in her care.

The nanny has now been arrested, accused of murder and the grief-stricken parents say she lied about what happened.

When Lerato Mnguni arrived home on Friday, her son’s nanny told her that robbers had poisoned her, as well as Langelihle, and they then kidnapped the toddler.

Only to find his dead body in a room – his mouth stuffed with a bandage.

“I never thought something like this could happen to my son,” Mnguni said.

The nanny had been looking after the child since he was two months old, mostly stayed alone with him while everyone was at work and now she’s been arrested for allegedly killing him.

The toddler’s aunt found his body, wrapped in a towel.

She says at first she thought he was sleeping.

The post-mortem has revealed that the toddler’s neck was fractured and he suffocated.

Police say the 51-year-old childminder was arrested after a preliminary investigation linked her to the murder.

No poison was found in her system or the child’s.

The nanny will appear in court on Monday.
