    Not located until 2015? What a scam! Zack Sketo has been living an established life in South Africa since he was just a little boy and when his mum got SA Citizenship, he did as well! South African courts knew and always have known that Marisa and Zack fled to South Africa to escape abuse in the United States by a vindictive ex-partner. Marisa and Zack were FOUND by the ex-partner in South Africa many many years ago before all of this “Nuke Mum” stuff and the custody dispute heard in South African courts. It sure did not help the arguements of the ex-partner when he joked he has connections to get people to KILL the mother of his child and South African courts rule 100% for Marisa to stay with Zack in South Africa as residents then got citizenship! This woman had dealings with bad people in South Africa but she loves this kid a lot and was willing to be in prison to save her son. How many father and mother you know is going to leave all their life in their homeland of birth and move to a totally foreign nation to beg asylum from a totally foreign government to please save your abused child who fears to return?! Sadly I know of many and American media talks of cases of parents who leave the United States with their American born kids to come to South African and other commonwealth nations for justice and asylum. Zack loves his mother a lot and is very grateful for her courage. He does not hate her or feel he must return to South Carolina, USA to meet with his father.

    I’m zacks mother and he was being raped by his father Kevin kirshw. No one has told it like it really is until the last comment. No questions why I had to go to such extremes to get my son away from a pedophile. Why hasn’t anyone looked into Kevin’s history of drug dealing and 3 prison terms for it. Why hasn’t anyone looked at his extensive history of police records?
    I am so grateful that anonymous finally told the real story.
