In a post, Mogale identified Nhlapo as a woman she knows and claimed she had allegedly recorded herself assaulting the toddler as some sadistic warning to her partner, whom she reportedly shares the child with.
Neither Nhlapo nor the boyfriend, a man known only as Mxolisi Scorch has reacted to the online backlash.
