Abongile Rungq's body was recently discovered in the bushes at Booysens Park, according to police. 


Abongile Rungq's body was discovered in the bushes at Booysens Park after he was reported missing recently. 


EARLIER THIS WEEK, RUNGQ WAS REPORTED MISSING 

Community members searching for bush medicine discovered the body of a man on Thursday, according to police spokesman Colonel Priscilla Naidu. 


“Community members searching for bush medicine came across Abongile, who was hanging from a tree. Later that evening, the cops were called.” 


Rungqu's father, according to Naidu, was able to positively identify him. 


Rungq, Abongile, was 26 years old at the time of his death. 


"An inquest case has been filed." 


Rungq vanished from Jansen Street in Booysens Park on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. 


Abongile Rungqu was last seen by his father at his aunt's home in Booysens Park, according to police records. 


“Abongile is in the care of his aunt. His father claimed that on September 13, 2021, at 12:00 p.m., he went to see his son after learning that he had suicidal thoughts and attempted to hang himself. 


“His father chatted with his son, and he vowed to visit the doctor the next day.” 


She said the father was informed that Abongile had left a note saying he was heading to church the same evening at around 18:00. 


“Abongile is said to have called his mother at 20:00 and told her he was walking around in the bushes between St Albans and Booysens Park. 


“He stated that he would return home, but he never did. His phone is ringing, but he hasn't picked up.” 


DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO MIGHT BE ON THE VERGE OF COMING TOGETHER? 

Preventing suicides begins with keeping an eye out for a friend or loved one. 


South Africa has 23 suicides a day and 230 serious attempts, according to the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG). 


“You can contact SADAG on behalf of a family member, coworker, or acquaintance. Trained counsellors are on hand to assist you and can direct you to nearby counsellors, facilities, and Support Groups.”
