A Hammanskraal family has asked the public for their help in finding their father who has been missing since the year 2019 which makes it close to 2-years now. Frans Mmeli Mahlangu (74) from New Eesturus Hammanskraal Block D house number 2406 went missing in September 2019. Hammanskraal Police communication officer sergeant Molani confirmed they were investigating a missing person case opened by Mahlangu’s wife Margaret Mahlangu.
“We are still investigating the missing person’s case, so far we do not have any lead but we are not resting nor going to rest up until we find something,” Sergeant Molani explained. The son to the missing Mahlangu, Daniel Mahlangu, explained that his father is a very talkative and active man.
“Before going missing my father was very aggressive and I think the cause of that is old age was starting to catch up with him because every time we had a conversation he would ask you one and the same question time and again,” Mahlangu explained.
“It is unlike my father to go missing for so long without telling us about his whereabouts and leaving his family behind, we know how much he cares for his family.” “We asked friends and church members about my father but they are also looking for him, he is one of the priest at ZCC and everyone knows him as Moruti.”
Mahlangu was last seen walking around Jubilee Mall in Hamanskraal during his last days before he went missing. “We searched everywhere. We went to the hospitals, around town and the government mortuary. We also contacted friends and relatives but nobody knows where he is.”
His son Daniel said it was unknown what the missing man was wearing at the time of his disappearance. His church ZCC members from Stinkwater, Mogogelo, Soshanguve and New Eesterus ask the community and police to help find their friend as they are the ones who spent a lot of time with him as church members and as well as friends. Police appealed to the public to assist with any information that could lead to knowing his whereabouts. Anyone with information, may contact the Hammanskraal SAPS on 012-432-8767; or alternatively contact the investigating officer Detective Constable Magampa on 081-845-8072. They can also contact his son Daniel Mahlangu 065-816-8585.
