On 19 February – six weeks ago – Joslin Smith disappeared from her home in the Middelpos informal settlement in Diazville, Saldanha Bay.

Despite social media posts suggesting otherwise, the six-year-old has yet to be found.

Four suspects – including Joslin’s mother, Kelly, and her boyfriend, Jacquin Appollis, as well as friends Steveno Van Rhyn and Lourentia Lombaard, have been arrested for kidnapping and human trafficking.

All four have abandoned bail and are currently in custody.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Lombaard made a “full confession” linking her to Joslin’s disappearance. The state further claimed that Joslin’s mother, Kelly, instructed Appollis and Van Rhyn to sell her daughter to a sangoma for R20 000 to be used in muti.

Spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said more arrests were imminent and charges would be added.

He told EWN: “That would come out in court.”
