FORMER MDC national spokesperson, Joshua Mhambi’s son, Mthabisi, has gone missing in South Africa where the family is based.

Mhambi quit the Welshman Ncube led party in 2015 after the party reassigned him to a less influential post.

He was once Zapu 2000 leader.

On Monday his son left home, in Kempton Park, to work in Boksburg which is some 20 kilometres away.

However, he has not been accounted for since then.

In an appeal posted on his Facebook page, Mhambi said he son never arrived at his workplace.

“Mthabisi Mhambi has been missing since Monday late afternoon. He left home (Kempton Park) going for work (in Boksburg) and did not come back. He did not report for duty. Anyone with information on his whereabouts please contact parents on +27 72 373 5892/061 950 2194 and 081 581 9303),” he wrote.

This triggered a flood of messages from relatives and friends comforting the family.

In an update posted on Wednesday evening, Mhambi said there was stil no lead on his whereabouts.

“The search continues. There is no lead or tip as at 21:30. Thank you so much for the messages of support and prayer. Greatly cherished at this hour of need. We will ride through the Storm. God sustains!,” he posted.

Some of his friends and colleagues have since launched online campaigns to assist the family to locate the missing young man.

Millions of Zimbabweans fleeing economic challenges in Zimbabwe have moved to neighbouring countries like South Africa and Botswana.

However, South Africa is one of the most unsafe countries in the world with a high crime rate.

Recently, that country’s police minister Fikile Mbalula blamed the high crime rate on former Zimbabwean soldiers.
