Cape Town - She was last seen being beaten up and dragged away by an unknown man. Now the family of a Delft teenager are desperate for her safe return.
Noxolo Xabakashe, 49, said her world fell apart after the beating and abduction of her youngest daughter, Lelethu Xabakashe, 17, in her family yard a week ago. “If I sit and do nothing, I think about my daughter and what happened to her, struggle to breathe and cry a lot.”
Xabakashe said they had opened a case with the police and are now praying for her daughter’s safe return.
Lelethu, affectionately known as Lele, is in Grade 11 at Simunye High School in Delft and was last seen by a group of friends before she was allegedly attacked and abducted by an unknown man around 12pm last Saturday.
“I want those friends that she went out with to speak up and tell the police what happened. They all have the same story that she went to Khayelitsha.”
