A Chipinge family was left traumatised after their maid kidnapped their infant and vanished. The recently employed domestic worker was later arrested at her rural home in Chiredzi after detectives quickly launched a manhunt.

“On Monday my colleagues introduced me to this girl who was looking for a job. I really wanted someone to look after my daughter while I am at work. I took the maid to my office and explained to her the conditions of service. We agreed and I took her to my house. The following day I went to work leaving her with my one-year-old daughter.

“At around 4 pm I drove home intending to check if my daughter was okay and that is when I realised that the maid was not at home. I tried to be patient and waited for her return for some hours but she did not show up.

“I notified my husband and he made a police report and a search was conducted. We did not sleep that night. A team of detectives then made a follow and recovered my daughter in Chiredzi on Wednesday at around 2 pm. Chipinge district CID public relations officer, Assistant Inspector Daniel Mhini, confirmed the incident.

“On May 6, the kidnapper posed as an innocent childminder to Margaret Muyambo who was looking for a maid. Muyambo employed Sithole as a childminder and entrusted her to keep the infant at her matrimonial home. On May 7 at around 8 am, Muyambo went to her workplace leaving her child in the care of the purported childminder.

“At around 3 pm on the same day, the deceitful childminder transformed her evil thoughts into action, ransacked the bedroom and stole R500 before strapping the baby on her back. She left the residence and boarded a commuter omnibus to her rural home in Porusingazi Village which is about 200km from Chipinge town. Muyambo returned back home and found the child missing,” he said. She is set to appear in court today on theft and kidnapping charges
