SINCE her three-year-old daughter went missing on Saturday Nontlantla Ntsepho, 35, has not spoken a single word. She just sits in her house all day, staring at friends and family.

Ntsepho was admitted to Livingstone Hospital at the weekend after suffering a nervous breakdown when her child went missing.

But even though her daughter Ntembiso was found unharmed shortly afterwards, she is still unresponsive. Ntembiso is being kept at a place of safety while paperwork is typed up and filed.

While Ntsepho’s family sat outside their RDP house yesterday chatting and laughing, she sat inside, wrapped in a blanket with her hands in her lap.

“She just sits like that all day. We don’t know what is wrong, but we hope she gets better when her daughter is back home,” her sister Ntabiseng, 18, said yesterday at their Sewende Laan home. – Riaan Marais
