A clarion call has been made to parents to be extra vigilant about their children’s whereabouts following the disappearance of two seven-year-old boys from BM informal settlement, in Site B.

Friends, Linathi Ntshonga and Miyolo Gwinta, were last seen on Thursday 15 October. They allegedly took a ride on a truck transporting home contents to Bosasa temporary relocation area (TRA) near Mfuleni.

Monde Nqulwana, ward 89 councillor, urged parents to be extra careful and take responsibility for their children. “Children need to be supervised at all times because the trucks are busy as they relocate about 35 people a day. We know and have heard about stories of children disappearing without a trace. I call on parents to be responsible,” said Nqulwana.

Treasurer of the Banny Molokoana branch of the SA National Civics Organisation (Sanco) Simphiwe Phendu said they have been searching for the kids since their disappearance. “We have already went to hospitals, police station, mortuaries,” said Phendu.

Provincial police spokespeson Sgt Noloyiso Rwexana told City Vision that the search for the two boys is still on-going. She said detectives attached to the Khayelitsha FCS unit and Khayelitsha police are searching and following all the leads.
