Police Confirms the Heart-Wrenching Incident

Harare provincial spokesperson Inspector Luckmore Chakanza confirmed that investigations were underway. But as of now, neither the baby nor the kidnapper have been located. The anguished father has taken to social media, circulating audio messages and sharing the child’s photo, appealing to the public for any information that may aid in finding their beloved baby.


The alarming increase in baby kidnappings is evident, as seen in a recent court case. A woman stands accused of abducting a five-month-old baby boy from South Africa, belonging to a Zimbabwean mother, and bringing him to Zimbabwe.
