MEC Nonhlanhla Khoza said the boy was spotted by members of the public standing inside the house, which was secured by burglar guards and kept locked daily.

She claimed the boy was given to his father, who then locked him inside the house over a month ago.

“We were surprised by the conditions in which the child was left. We are more surprised and shocked than anything, because we never thought that a parent could do such a thing to their own child.

“The child was left in such a despicable state. No child deserves to be treated like this and there is no explanation that can be accepted by the parents of this poor child, ”she said.

The MEC called on the police to investigate the matter.

“There should be no negotiations with the abusers. As the Department of Social Development, we leave no stone unturned in dealing with such cases in our society. A number of children are being brought up in unsanitary homes. We encourage parents to seek government assistance if they are unable to care for their children, ”she said.
