The parents of a family who live on a houseboat in Australia have described how angry they feel after being ordered to move off the boat following the death of their toddler Zeinobiyah who fell into Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney and drowned.

According to the Daily Mail,  Rebecca Soetekouw  who describes herself as a “hippie” wrote about the situation on social media, disagreeing with Child Services who have allegedly told her that the family can no longer live on the boat.

Ms. Soetekouw is said to have described how she is angry at the government who have given her four weeks to have the houseboat repaired, and, in an unbelievable turn of events, even finds herself being angry at Zeinobiyah for having drowned as the child’s death has resulted in her present situation.

Ms. Soetekouw has spoken about how the family is “emotionally ruined” and is currently living in emergency accommodation after losing the houseboat which was their home since they left their previous home in Tasmania.

As well as tragic toddler Zeinobiyah, she shares ten other children with her partner Steve.
