- Zahara's niece was missing for nearly two weeks but has been found alive and safe
- The singer's family can rest easy now that they know the young woman, Anelisa Mathebe, is okay
- She went missing after attending an event in East London
Zahara and the rest of her family are very relieved that one of their own has been found after being missing for nearly two weeks.
Anelisa Mathebe went missing after she attended a Motsepe Foundation event in East London earlier in November.
Zahara shared a photo of her niece, asking her fans to help out in the search for the young woman.
TimesLIVE reports that Bandezwa Mkutukana, Zahara's sister, announced that Anelisa is back home.
"She returned and we are very happy. We opened a case with police and she has been returned. Her phone was taken, that is why no-one could get hold of her, but she is safe and home."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Zahara said her family were praying for Anelisa's safe return.
Before coming back, Anelisa called from a strange number, making the family very anxious.
"I am just worried because so many people go missing in this country. For us to be honouring 16 Days of Activism, and for a family member to be missing during this time, was traumatic. We really need to work together to make SA safer for women."
