A South African couple, from Port Elizabeth, have been arrested for selling their third child, a baby girl, online to raise money and using part of the money to purchase the latest Apple Iphone.

According to State Media report, a case of human trafficking have been brought against the couple. Investigators claim the woman, whose full name has been withheld due to the sensitivity of the case, used the money to buy an iPhone, high-end sports shoes and other goods.

It was gathered that so many South Africans go to extreme lengths to get hold of the latest Apple iPhone. An example was the case of a teenage boy, who also sold his kidney, and used part of the money to buy an iPhone and iPad.

During Police interrogation, the couple confessed to selling their baby. They claimed they sold her because they wanted her to have a better upbringing than they could provide, as they already had two children.

The mother said: “Giving away the child was not for obtaining benefits, but giving her better guarantees.”

An official of the prosecutor’s office dealing with the case has expressed concerns over ‘sensationalism’ surrounding the case, but declined to comment further.

Reports did not give the amount the couple received for the child, but their online postings allegedly asked for a very large amount.

A group of protesters has begun a march in a bid to have the courts impose very stiff sentences for the parents.

Among them is a children’s right activist, who said “This is unacceptable ! We’re calling for a very stiff sentence. If parents for some reason realize they can no longer take care of their child they should arrange for foster care or adoption.”
