Nearly a month after six-year-old Shasha Lee November was reported missing, a further cash reward has been offered.

An anonymous resident has donated R10 000 towards finding the girl who went missing from her Groenal Walk home on Sunday 3 May.

People’s Post previously reported on the reward of R25 000 offered by mayor Patricia de Lille (“Night vigil for missing Shasha Lee”, 12 May).

De Lille says she received a message of an anonymous donation in reward for information which will lead to the arrest and conviction of the guilty parties.

“I offered a R25 000 reward for any information that would lead to finding Shasha Lee. Soon after a resident who empathised with the plight of Shasha Lee’s family contacted my office to make a contribution to the reward,” De Lille says.

The cash reward now stands at R35 000.

“I am deeply grateful to the resident for this gracious offer and wish to reiterate my call for anyone with information to come forward so that we can find Shasha Lee.”

The donor will make the funds available when someone comes forward with sufficient information that will lead to finding Shasha Lee and to the conviction of the guilty parties, De Lille says in a statement.

Police and community members are continuing the search for Shasha Lee and following up on all information they receive.

According to community activist and leader Igshaan Nazier the efforts to find Shasha continue.

“Some residents may have become despondent but we will never let up the search for this little girl. We want her back home where she belongs,” Nazier says.

Nazier championed the search party for Shasha when the news broke of her disappearance.

“We have searched relentlessly since then. We have gone into people’s homes even in Hanover Park to search for her. We have received great cooperation from the community.”

“During national Child Protection Week, we were reminded of our duty to protect and take care of our children and I call on all residents and communities to fulfil their duty at all times. My heart goes out to the mother and family of this young girl and I would like to add to her appeal for anyone who knows about her whereabouts to please come forward with information,” De Lille says.V
