The South African Police Service (SAPS) in Limpopo has launched a massive search operation for Dengue Tshililo.
From our gatherings, SAPS launched the search operation after Dengue Tshililo (20) was reported missing by her mother.
According to SAPS, Dengue Tshililo was left home by her mother who went to attend a church conference. When she returned, she found her missing and immediately reported the incident to the Police.
Now, the police service is calling on anyone with information about her whereabouts to contact Lieutenant Colonel William Ramokhubedu at 082 499 8389.
Alternatively, you can contact the police station nearest to you or buzz Crime Stop number – 0860010111.
Susan Shabangu, the Minister in the Presidency responsible for Women said the heinous murders of women and children by their boyfriends, fathers, husbands and uncles, who are supposed to love them, must stop.
“The battle against violence against women is for all of us,” she said. “Men and women must take a stand. Communities are taking a stand, getting organised to march and to establish organisations in response to violence against women.
“The communities are working with law enforcement to ensure that perpetrators are arrested. I call on society to unite in fighting gender-based violence,” pleaded Shabangu.
Meanwhile, SAPS issued a warning against hoax and false posts on social media about missing, kidnapped and abducted girls and women.
SAPS said the false posts are sowing panic and wasting its resources. Commenting on this, Lt Gen Phahlane warned thus:
“Just as in the event of a person laying a false criminal charge, those spreading false information through social media, leading to crime being committed or fruitless use of state resources will be investigated and prosecuted or subjected to civil litigation to recover police expenses.”
In KwaZuli-Natal, SAPS made “an urgent appeal to the members of the community with the whereabouts of the two males in the attached identikit.”
SAPS believe the guys could assist them in solving a case of house robbery that happened on 19 May 2017.
Anyone with the information about their whereabouts can contact the investigating officer, Constable LV Dushu on 083 620 3544 or Crime Stop number 08600 10111.
