A 25-year-old South African mother is presently heartbroken and shattered as her 9-month old baby has been missing for five days now.
Abongile Nojahi, the unemployed mother claims she had let her 17-year-old neighbour, Zanele Mchunu âborrowâ her son on Saturday and since then she hasnât set her eyes on her child nor the neighbour whose phone has been out of reach.
âThis is so hard. I donât sleep at night because I just lie awake and worry about where he isââAbongile said.
Narrating the sad occurrence to Times Live, the distraught mother said: “She came to my house and asked if she could borrow my baby and I said that was fine.
“She said she would come back. I gave her my baby and by the time Sunday cameâ she had never come backââ she said.
Abongile said she felt comfortable leaving her child with her friendâ and did not find the request strange or had any reason to suspect that she would make such move.
âShe often looks after himâ so it was normal to me. I have known her for a year and she is my neighbour.â Although, she has however reported to the police the missing case of her child and Police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala made an appeal to the general public with information to reach them.
