Abongile Nojahi has no words for a neighbour who “borrowed” her baby and then went missing without a trace.
“I will go to court because I want to see her but I don’t know what to even say to her. I am so angry. I can’t even think what I want to say to her‚” the 25-year-old Durban mother said on Monday.
Nojahi’s nine-month-old son was found in Inanda on Sunday after he went missing from Mount Moriah in Phoenix more than a week ago.
A 17-year-old neighbour‚ who had “borrowed” the baby because she was going to the mall‚ was arrested and is expected to be in court on a charge of kidnapping on Monday.
“I regret giving my baby to her. I trusted her because she looked after him many times before. I did not expect her to take him away‚” Nojahi said.
Nojahi was relieved when her baby was found but will only be happy when he is formally returned to her.
“I just want him home with me. I thank the police for finding him but I want him home with me.”
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said the baby was in a place of safety.
“The mother identified the baby. The baby will be taken for a medical check-up‚” she said.
