Gisenyi, Boarder-It has been two months now, when six year old girl Michella Jackson went missing from her parents after she was stolen from their home but the child was found in the Democratic Republic of Congo and re-united with his parents today.

Two months ago while in a church Egidia Musabyemariya, the mother of the child met a strange man of the Congolese origin who requested to be given a shelter by the couple over night because he didn’t have a place to sleep.

“We accepted to give him a shelter but the following morning as we went about our routine work, he monitored our movements and he took off with the child,” said Theoneste Gatera, who was translating for the dumb couple.

Both parents of the child can neither speak nor hear informed authorities and mounted a search that discovered a child in DRC.

“We suspected the Congolese whom we had sheltered and we knew he had been taken to DRC thankfully the child is here,” said Wilson Nsengimana, the father of the child through Gatera.

As luck would have it, when unidentified man was carrying the baby in a sack after crossing gisenyi-goma, he was stopped by Congolese authorities after suspicion of any illegal luggage.

“We suspected what the gentle man was carrying in the sack when we stopped him there was a child and we arrested the man as we took the child to immaculate orphanage,” said Jean Malihaseme Musanga, the mayor of goma town who was present during the handing over of the child to his parents.

Both perants live in Gatenga of Kicukiro district of Kigali City.

Sheikh Hassan Bahame, the mayor of Rubavu applauded action of the Congolese authorities and called for more cooperation between the two countries.
