Leshoto

22. of August last year a little girl was kidnapped by a 33 year old woman from the Eastern Cape. The suspect had, before the kidnapping, met the mother of the baby in a taxi and started visiting their home. The mother said that the suspect had visited  them three or four times before the baby disappeared. When the kidnapping happened the girl was only 3 three weeks old.

The father says in an interview that he can’t thank the people who has helped and supported him and his wife through these difficult times enough. He is also very grateful for what the South-African police has done to find his daughter. The father said that he would like to talk to the woman, but otherwise he would leave everything to the police.

Investigations lead the police to the woman, who was asked to test herself to prove the child was hers. The suspect was found while she was heading for her home town, Tsolo. She had earlier stayed in Guateng with the baby until about the beginning of October.
