The wig seller says the woman had told her she would take her time selecting a wig of her choice as she had spent that whole day looking for her.Tina said "I did not have a problem with her because in mind I just thought am selling another wig to her" The woman and daughter then stayed in Tina's house for about seven hours,the woman then told Tina that she wants to buy diapers for her nine months old baby known as Mohammed Taki.She sent the teenage girl to the shop to buy the diapers,and the girl requested to go with the baby, however few minutes later the baby was heard crying and the woman told Tina she would check why the baby was crying. Immediately the woman left is when Tina smelt a rat as she realized the woman had left with her handbag. "I rushed to the shop where the girl was to buy the diapers,I found neither the woman,her daughter nor my son.

A CCTV footage shows the woman and her daughter hopping on to a motorbike as soon as they left the house.The distraught mother reported the incident to Bamburi and Kadzandani police stations.
