Please follow our page for more update.

Sizakele Myende (28) is among the 14 people who have been reported missing in the troubled community in recent months.

Port Shepstone police and various search and rescue units search the uMthwalume area on KwaZulu-Natal's south coast on 11 August 2020 after Hibberdene police were informed about a body that was found by locals. Another body was found on 12 August 2020

DURBAN - An uMthwalume family on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast said they were urgent to be brought together with their missing little girl. 

Sizakele Myende (28) is among the 14 individuals who were accounted for missing in the pained network as of late. 

She was most recently seen a month back in the wake of leaving her home for work. 

Up until now, five bodies have been found in the territory. 

The Myende group of 15 is on edge about what could have happened to Sizakele. 

Sizakele's grandma Zonke Myende was obviously enthusiastic in her rondavel harping as she sat on a woven reed tangle with two other relatives. 

"I need her back. She was our solitary provider, we are ravenous." 

The assortments of five ladies were found in the region in the course of recent months. 

Yet, Sizakele's uncle, Ndukuzakhe Myende said they stayed cheerful that she is as yet alive. 

"We are for the most part reliant on her. She is the most lucky one in the family since she could make sure about work as a residential specialist." 

Sizakele was assisting with building two mud houses for the family before she disappeared. 

In any case, the ventures have slowed down uncertainly because of budgetary imperatives inside the family.

The troubled community of uMthwalume has told Eyewitness News that the recent murders of women were having a devastating economic impact on already impoverished families.

A man believed to have been responsible for the crimes was found hanging while in police custody this week, and the community was left frustrated saying he died with key information.

Despite not having much, local pastor Zamani Mhlongo made it his mission to offer spiritual and financial support to families affected by recent cases involving women in uMthwalume.

He spoke to EWN while visiting the Myende family.

“The situation affects us badly because we do not have money to cover all these expenses as Mr Myende said earlier on. He doesn’t even have money to go to the police station or to travel around to see if they found the body,” said Mhlongo.

Police Minister Bheki Cele has deployed a team of senior investigators to the community.

But Mhlongo said the community needed to consider establishing its own security systems to prevent further violence against women.
