Pastor missing since 2017; mother desperate for answers


Navindra Ramdin, 28, also known as ‘Rockey’ of Richardsville, Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, was last seen at his brothers’ house in the same village on August 5, 2017.

He lived with his wife and two sons but disappeared without a trace and his mother, Limwattie Laljie, 46, is desperate for answers; she wants closure as she believes he was murdered.

Laljie sits on her veranda at her home in Good Hope praying for the day she would see her son walk through the gates.

Laljie said the last time she saw her son was when he came to help her paint her house – that was a month before he disappeared.

Before Ramdin went missing, his mother said he complained to her about an issue with his wife who was texting an individual constantly and so he broke her phone.

Limwattie Laljie believes her son was murdered

“Message still ah come, so he [broke her] phone and about two days after a boy pun a bicycle threaten he and say ‘Doan mess with [my] woman or else [I] will kill you and put you in a septic tank,” the mother told News Room.

Limwattie said she advised her son to make a report at the police station but he told her he was fed up with the situation.

She said a few days later she called her daughter-in-law to help with the issue but was told that her son had left for the interior region and then later heard he was in Venezuela.

However, the woman showed News Room a document which was obtained from the Immigration Department that indicated the father of two did not leave the country – at least not with his passport.

Limwattie is not satisfied with the way the Police handled the missing person report.

She claimed that an officer told her that the Police cannot assist her because she took her story to the media.

“Two set of Detective can’t do nothing about this story, [they] telling me that because me go to the media they can’t help me, that me got to give them some time.”

Ramdin managed the Church of Christ in Essequibo and studied at Life Spring Ministries. He also studied Civil Engineering at the University of Guyana.

He was described as a peaceful person.

News Room visited the man’s wife who declined to offer comments.

The wife debunked the claims made by the man’s mother and denied knowing the whereabouts of her husband.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Navindra Ramdin is asked to make contact with the nearest police station or his mother on telephone number 662-7677.
