A woman has accused Khayelitsha police of negligence after the search for two children who were reported missing was delayed at the weekend.
It is alleged that a Site C woman reported her 4 year old girl and niece at police station on Friday, but she was only told to come back the following day with their photos.
The woman decided to launch her own investigation and the children were found safe in Mfuleni on the following day.
Police spokesperson, Captain Anneker Van der Vyfer says the internal investigations are underway.
“With regards to the allegations made by the mother, it will be investigated internally and action will be taken against the members should they found guilty,” said Van der Vyfer.
