The Northern Cape Department of Health has appealed to the family and friends of Andries Raad to contact the Kimberley Hospital.

This was already done months ago, after he had been discharged days after being admitted on 28 May.

According to Lulu Mxekezo of the department, Raad had been involved in a vehicle accident as a pedestrian and had indicated that he was from Colville, Kimberley.

He could not, however, provide a physical address or details of his next of kin.

“Unfortunately, he does not have any form of identification with him, hence it is difficult to confirm his identity or to locate his family.”

The Department of Home Affairs and the South African Police Service have also tried to trace his family, without success.
