Patricia, a young lady who recently accomplished her university studies, is searching for her parents or relatives in Zimbabwe. Her surname is unknown.
Patricia spoke Chishona at the time she was picked and adopted the surname of a police officer Davies who handled her case after police was notified by the public.
“Ndinonzi Patty, mama vangu varikuuya kuzonditora, are the words the girl could say when she was discovered,” said Thabani Dube, Zimbabwe Union of Journalists, Treasurer General helping with the search.
At the time Patricia was picked she was between the ages of two and three years old and that could mean that she might have strayed from the custody of her guardian(s) or she was abandoned in Mbare.
“We are searching for parents and close relatives of Patricia who was found wandering alone in Mbare, Harare in March 1995.
“She was between the ages of 2 and 3 years old.
“She could also have come from other provinces in Zimbabwe since Mbare is a Central point for travellers and farming communities in Harare and the country alike,” said Dube.
Dube strongly believes that with limited media platforms then the relatives or parents of this child could have missed announcements made on Radio 2 now Radio Zimbabwe, but with today’s multi-media environment, the search can be made easier.
“I am appealing for the public or anyone with information or who knows some people who lost a girl child in 1995 or before to contact me on 0775 657 498 or 0718 424 051,” said Dube.
