According to his sister, Ms Balanganani Gavhi, Ralikhwatha went with other family members, to the local church on a Sunday, 23 September, but left to go back home before the formal service. She alleges that he found her granny home, fetched a bag with clothing and left without telling anyone where he was headed to.

Ralikhwatha, who was last seen at Ngovhela village, was described as of short height, slender, and coffee in complexion. He was wearing a grey trousers and a brown jacket at the time of his disappearance.

"We have looked everywhere, with no luck. We have been to several villages after receiving tip-offs about his whereabouts, but after combing all these places, we have not been lucky. We are having sleepless night thinking of what could have happened to him. As for me, I cannot even eat, thinking about my brother. Even my mother is failing to come to terms with his disappearance," she said.

Anyone with information about him can phone W/O Sigogo on 015 960 1088 or 082 484 1999, or his brother, Balanganani Gavhi, on 071 192 0426.
