2014-04-24 00:00

OVER a week after baby Olwethu Madlala (pictured) was snatched by a woman at the Pietermaritzburg Home Affairs offices, there is no trace of him.

His mother, Nonhlanhla Madlala, told The Witness yesterday, “This week I have had no sleep thinking about my missing baby. I have prayed to God every day since he was stolen from me on Tuesday last week for his return.

“I hope people will be kind to me and respond to my request for help in finding my baby because I am going crazy not knowing how my baby is or where he is.”

Anyone who might have information about the whereabouts of the baby can contact Olwethu’s father, Bonginkosi Mphemba, at 079 405 6518 or Madlala at 076 082 0125.
