A mother from Winterveldt, in Mabopane, is urging South Africans to assist in finding her son who went missing after attending an EFF rally, which was held at the FNB stadium in July.

Elias Skhosana (40) had gone to the rally with members of his choir.

His mother, Nondlela Dhladhla, says Skhosana suffers from epilepsy and is vulnerable wherever he is.

“He had fits but he is controllable. He is a staunch churchgoer, he has been going with his choir to various places and manages to return. Only now that he has not returned.”

It is suspected that the 40-year-old could have boarded a wrong bus or became confused in the multitudes of people at the stadium and got lost.

“We have been looking for him, with some EFF members, at various hospitals, mortuaries without luck. We have been to the North West, we were in Johannesburg over the past two days. I need help. I want my son. I need him back home. I can’t even sleep. He has been missing for more than two months now.”

A missing person’s case has been opened at the Booysens police station and members of the public are urged to take Skhosana there should they recognise him.
