"Today when I went to the mortuary to identify her body, I saw she had a big cut on the side of her head and her brains had popped out through her nostrils."
Zanele said what hurt the most on Sunday was that she learnt of her daughter's death on social media.
"What pains me the most is that I only found out in the evening when my child died around 2pm on Sunday," said the teenage mother.
She said it would take her a very long time to forgive her boyfriend's mother as she did not know she was taking the baby to shebeens.
Her boyfriend, Morena Molakeng, 20, said he was in Namibia, where he works, at the time of his daughter's death.
"I got the news from my girlfriend. I was in shock and disbelief until I arrived here to confirm the news.
"What hurts the most right now is the circumstances around my daughter's death. She was my first born ... just when I was enjoying fatherhood, I lost her."
Visiting the family yesterday, MEC for community safety Sizakele Nkosi-
Malobane said: "I strongly condemn the actions of the grandmother for removing the child from the safe haven of her home and taking her to a shebeen and exposing her to danger.
"However, we will ensure that the perpetrator is brought to justice and we have prioritised the investigation of the matter," she said.
Nkosi-Malobane also said the police would investigate a case of child neglect.
