“We are getting leads and trying to follow up. But we don’t know if these leads can be trusted. We are worried about our safety, especially when following leads but because of desperation in trying to find her, we go anyway.”

“Nobody knows what happened to her. We contacted all her friends, and nobody seems to know about her whereabouts. She has never done this before.

“It just doesn’t make sense. She has to come home there is nowhere else but home. Wherever she is, I know it’s not better than home,” says Phungula.
