Western Cape Judge President John Hlophehe is expected to hand down judgment in the much publicised trial of the woman accused of abducting Zephany Nurse in the High Court today.
The Lavender Hill woman faces charges of kidnapping, fraud and contravening sections of the Children’s Act.
EWN's Giovanna Gerbi paid a visit to Zephany Nurse's home and spoke to the man who raised her. Despite the events unfolding in the case, the young woman chooses to live in his home and remains very close to him.
Gerbi claims that the judgment will not be unexpected. Judge Hlophe has been outspoken about how this case has appalled him .
Judge John Hlophe has been vociferous throughout the trial on his standpoint. So I don't think that when he delivers his judgement at 10 o'clock this morning, it will be much of a surprise.— Giovanna Gerbi, EWN reporter
