Zimbabwe Maid Kidnaps Baby & Steals Employer’s Car
The Zimbabwe Republic Police have appealed for information which may lead to the arrest of a maid from hell who kidnapped her employer’s 20-month-old son on Monday.
To add salt to injury, Kimberly Ncube, the 19-year-old maid, also stole the family’s vehicle, which was parked at their home in Bulawayo’s Paddonhurst suburb.
In a statement addressing the disturbing case, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) deputy spokesperson in Bulawayo Province, Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele said,
“Police in Bulawayo are looking for Kimberly Ncube, a female adult aged 19, she was employed as a maid in Paddonhurst in Bulawayo. She was left alone looking after her employer’s one-year eight-month-old son.
“She took advantage of her employer’s absence who had gone to work, and she stole her white BMW 328i, registration number AEA8833 which was parked in the garage.
“She also took the motor vehicle’s documents and also kidnapped the one-year eight-month-old son and disappeared with him. We suspect that she was assisted by her boyfriend.”
