A Cape Town sex worker appeared in the Atlantis Magistrate's Court for allegedly allowing a man to molest her niece for money, according to a report on Friday.
The Daily Voice reported that the woman (23) appeared on Thursday on charges of sexual grooming and sexual favours. The case was postponed to 25 January.
Prosecutors claimed that the woman lured her nieces, aged 10 and three, from their Witsand home a month ago.
Their mother, who cannot be named, said a man was waiting at the bridge and paid R200 to touch the older child, while her small sister looked on.
"She (the aunt) has been using tik (methamphetamine)... it is the tik that makes them do such things. She worked on the road, sold her body," the mother told the newspaper.
The aunt was arrested last Tuesday. A male suspect was also recently arrested.
