A Twitter account alleges to be Mrwetyana’s captive

In a call for help on Twitter, a fake account popped up throwing attacks at concerned friends of Uyinene Mrwetyana. An unidentified user, who goes by the name of “David Fele” stated:

“Listen here you won’t find her because I know where she is, and soon I am about to ship her out the country. Time is running tick-tock, and she is an asset, no wonder millions of dollars are coming left, right and centre to me, the captive. Toodles you won’t see her again.”

Uyinene Mrwetyana: The last known location

The student was last seen in Claremont, at 13:30 wearing a brown corduroy baggy pants and a black handbag. Mrwetyana lives in Roscommon House, a UCT residence situated in Claremont.

Mrwetyana is described to have a septum nose ring piercing that has two balls on it, and her hobbies are also described to be clubbing with friends. Concerned friends have reached out on social media for help in search of the missing student.

“We struggle to chew our food or enjoy our refreshments as we ponder, on whether she is hydrated or has been fed wherever she is. All we long for is a message confirming her safety and whereabouts. It scares me, thinking that she may think we aren’t worried about her, because of the distraction that may have possibly come with this short vacation. I know if we weren’t on vacation this situation would be on everybody’s lips, because the concern would be congested in one area, but it almost feels hopeless with everyone spread across the country.”
