Another one, a 15-year- old girl surrendered herself to the police in July last year, two days after police issued an appeal to people who may have seen her after she went missing.
When she turned herself in to the police and asked to be taken home, it was discovered that when she left home in Emakhandeni suburb she had been cohabiting with a 23 year old man who was later jailed for sleeping with a minor.— @ nqotshili.
