A South African man identified only as Obed, has suddenly gone missing.
The 46-year-old man mysteriously disappeared last Tuesday after allegedly having a f***t with his girlfriend.
Now, the woman is under pressure to produce the man.
Obed’s sister, Sbongile Ngele, a 38-year-old, said his girlfriend should tell them exactly what happened that Tuesday morning when Obed left her house at Winnie Mandela Section in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, South Africa.
“We have looked everywhere, at hospitals, mortuaries and several other places, but could not find him,” said Sibongile. “We even went to different sangomas and they all told us he was alive, but where is he?”
The family claimed something strange happened two days after his disappearance that made them fear for his safety.
“Two days after his disappearance his phone was answered by a stranger who said he found Obed’s phone in a taxi travelling from Irene to Tembisa. The person agreed to meet with us to hand over his phone, but that won’t be enough. We still don’t know where Obed is.”
His mum, Katherine Ngele said her son had not been well for some time.
“He told us before that he suffered from pain in his stomach that would not stop. My son is also hard of hearing. I don’t know how he will survive out there,” she said.
The last time he was seen, Obed was wearing a pair of black jeans, a red top with black shoes and a black cap. His girlfriend refused to meet with Daily Sun after several attempts.
Rabasotho police station spokeswoman Constable Patricia Mngijima confirmed that a missing person’s case was opened.
