HomeGossipLimpopo: 19-year-old mother arrested for bleaching a month old baby to convince her light skin boyfriend that the baby is his
When she was pregnant her light skin boyfriend told her that he does not trust her and if the baby comes out a few shades darker he is not the father.
When the baby was born the boyfriend was away for work so when he requested the baby pictures she always filtered them to make the baby look light-skinned. The plot thickens when the father said he is coming back to see the baby.
Tinyiko Mkhesani from Tzaneen in Limpopo started bleaching the baby’s skin intensively for four days using the ever popular Movate to make the baby lighter so to impress the father. Unfortunately the baby’s soft skin couldn’t take the harsh chemicals of the bleach product and started peeling off.
Tinyiko’s mother forced her to take the baby to the hospital where she was forced to explain what happen and the police where informed. She is now going to spend the holidays behind bars. the baby is being treated of the bleach wounds.
Rumour has it that the light-skinned father is actually a bleacher too.
“He is darker than the mother we know he has been bleaching for years”
