Accused's husband in Zephany Nurse trial 'lied to for 18 years'

The husband of the woman accused of kidnapping Zephany Nurse at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1997 said he was lied to for nearly 18 years.

The husband, who can't be named, took to the stand to explain that he did not doubt that the accused was pregnant or question where the baby came from.

He said he never had reason to question her because according to him she was pregnant all along.

EWN's Shamiela Fisher explained that the husband never went to doctor's appointments with the Lavender Hill woman.

One evening, in April 1997, he came home and found her with a baby and she told him that she had given birth.
