[LISTEN] Marriage fraud victim wins fourteen-year battle
Eyewitness News recently revealed how several women battled for more than a decade to have marriages annulled.
One of the women, Nomathamsanqa Swartbooi, was locked into a fraudulent marriage leaving her unable to register her child's birth and obtain an ID document.
She has now succeeded in winning her case after bringing it to the attention of the Wits Law Clinic and making it public.
Swartbooi says she is grateful that her 11-year-old son will finally receive his birth certificate.
