2 unknown bodies found as search for four missing young men continues in Driftsands

Cape Town police have asked the public to come forward should they have any missing individuals.

Two unknown men were recovered from a river that runs along the COVID-19 informal settlement in Driftsands over the weekend. This after four young men allegedly were thrown into the water after an assault by a group of people in a mob justice attack.

‘’For three days police divers and Mfuleni police officials have been scouring the area for the missing young men between the ages of 19 and 23. They were reported missing by family members between Saturday and Sunday evening. Eye witness accounts indicate the four men were assaulted by a group of people and thrown into the water,‘’ said Brigadier Novela Potelwa.

‘’On Saturday evening, the search party retrieved the first body. Meanwhile a second body was recovered on Sunday afternoon. The three families who opened missing persons’ cases with Mfuleni police over the weekend confirmed on Monday the bodies recovered on Saturday and Sunday were not their relatives,’’ added Potelwa.

The divers resumed their search on Tuesday morning, after searching a seven kilometre area along the river on Monday.

‘’As police investigate the circumstances surrounding the recovery of the two bodies, Detective Sergeant Magqaza can be contacted on 082 777 6898,’’ said Potelwa
