Vanessa Mubaiwa, 17, and Kimberley Mubaiwa, 21, were last seen when they left their residence in Capricorn, Muizenberg to go to the library, on Friday, 27 May. They were last seen at the Muizenberg Library.

“Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of the missing sisters or who can assist with the investigation is kindly requested to contact Captain Steven Lewis at Muizenberg Detective Branch on 082 469 2694 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111,” said police spokesperson Sergeant Wesley Twigg.

Their father Douglas, said the girls told him that they were going to the library to do a school project and it was later confirmed that they were seen there.

He said they left home around 10am and were at the library until 1.30pm.

There were reports that the girls had gotten a lift in a white Honda SUV with registration CA 39339.

However, speaking to News24, Mubaiwa said the lead came to a dead end when CCTV footage showed it was not the pair that got into the vehicle.

“They wanted to change their lives through education. Vanessa is in matric. They were both quiet children,” he said.
