Nanny on run with baby, ransom demanded
Johannesburg - A babysitter is apparently on the run with her employer’s baby and has demanded a ransom, it was reported on Monday.
However, police were unable to confirm the alleged kidnapping of the baby in Hestia Park, Pretoria, and urged the mother to report the matter, EWN said.
Mita Marobe called Talk Radio 702 on Monday morning to say she had discovered her 6-month-old child, Kgosietsile, and the babysitter were missing.
Several thousand rands, her cellphone and all the keys to the house were also gone. It appeared as if the woman was holding the baby for ransom.
“The nanny said if we still want the baby we must give her R45 000 and not to go to the police.”
Marobe said nearby security guards told her they saw the babysitter with her child at around 05:00.
According to EWN, the nanny’s name is Lynette Moyo.
