Soweto – The family of Shiraaz Mohamed picketed at the Hitekani Primary School in Chiawelo, Soweto, ahead of President Ramaphosa’s arrival on Wednesday.
With slogans like #FreeShiraazMohamed, "Bring my uncle Shar home now" and #BringShiraazHomeNow, the family called on the president to help free Mohamed who was captured in 2017 in Syria.
Mohamed’s brother, Ridwaan Mohamed explained what his family have gone through as "hell on earth".
He added that everyday is a nightmare for the family, and they request that the president help bring their brother back.
“We came here to plead with our president today. Time is running out, we have written a letter to your office Mr President,” he said.
