Angry Khayelitsha residents marched to the police station on Wednesday to demand cops step up their investigation into the disappearance of Anelisa Dulaze.
The young woman went missing on January 31, when she went out with friends to celebrate her 21st birthday.
Anelisa was last seen at a tavern in Town Two where her friends left her at the popular drinking spot.
About 100 residents joined the NGO Ilitha Labantu and Anelisa’s mom Vathiswa Dulaze, who has launched her own investigation.
“I spoke to about three of the people who saw her at the tavern and each one of them claims to have left her there with somebody else but nobody knows how or if she even left,” the mother said.
Marchers called on police to treat the case as a priority and question the people who were last in contact with Anelisa “before they take the law into their own hands”.
Ses’khona leader Andile Lili said: “We came here in peace to ask that the police properly investigate this matter. But if nothing happens we will do it ourselves, we will take these people by the hands and place them before the community.
“We will take them to our courts and that is not a nice court, our court is not impartial, there is anger in it and people get slapped.”
The group handed over a memorandum to Khayelitsha’s Site B police station Commander, Colonel Mkhuseli Nkwitshi, who said he would look into the delay.[Source: Daily Voice]
