- A mother had social media in a frenzy after posting that her daughter was missing
- She shared that her daughter had not come home the previous night and Mzansi was as worried as she was
- She eventually shared the good news that the child had been found
A distraught mother took to social media to ask for help and prayers when she realised that her daughter was missing. She updated Mzansi through the entire ordeal and was fortunately able to eventually find her child. Although many social media users shared her relief, others insisted that she punish the girl accordingly for the trauma caused.
Twitter user Nomagugu frantically took to social media to share that her daughter was missing. Over a few hours, she kept updating on the situation, with one of her tweets saying:
"She's not home yet guys, I'll try and trace the person who sent her that text message, it might be her school friend, thank you for your help, I appreciate."
A few hours later, she said that she learnt the girl had disappeared with friends from school.
"I managed to find a number on her WhatsApp using my phone, I called, the person says she was with her friends from school, it's a boy, he gave me a name then hung up, I've heard of that name before so we are going to look for that person she was with."
After hours of silence, the mom posted that she found the young girl, much to the relief of Mzansi social media users who were just as invested in her plight.
The mother explained that she found the girl in a Durban township called KwaMashu.
"She's safe, I don't even know these girls she was with but they are older than her, there's also an elderly woman in that house, she didn't even bother coming out to find out why there is noise in her yard."
Social media users began sharing their thoughts on how they would handle the child going forward. Twitter user MissSteelo said:
"Lord was I going to kick her hard. Fly spin kick her... she'd be scared of anything that spins from that day fourth, ne zweepe... rotating doors even. I was so stressed last night... I can't imagine her mom."
"Shuuuu. Glad she's good. Now drop kick her."
"Bathong. I'm so glad she's OK. What kind of older woman doesn't try and call you, to let you know she's there??? I'm worried and confused."
"She mustn't be with people you know nothing about, again just talk to her."
"Disappointed in you Aphiwe, at 13 already stressing mom like that... sleeping over & lying about it. No no no!!"
"You need to have the sit down with your daughter. Try by all means to show her the way. If she fails at least you know you tried."
