Johannesburg - A couple arrested for child abuse and assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm were expected to appear in the Benoni Magistrate's Court, SA, on Friday.
The pair had been granted bail of R3 000 (KES 30 000) each during their last appearance in May.
According to The Star, the couple were arrested after medical staff at the Netcare Linmed Hospital, who had been treating the couple child for bronchitis, alerted authorities to the infant's injuries.
The baby had suffered three broken ribs, a fractured knee and brain injuries.
The child, who was seven weeks old at the time, had been taken to a place of safety.
