BREAKING : Thembisa 10 Mother Gosiame Thamara Sithole Arrested. The mother of the ‘Thembisa 10’, Gosiame Thamara Sithole has been detained by police, the Pretoria News has reported.
The report states that Sithole was detained since Thursday morning.
According to her lawyer, Refiloe Mokoena, police have kept Sithole against her will and denied her access to legal representation, saying they needed to hand her over to the Gauteng Department of Social Development, the report stated.
They have handed her over to the Department of Social Development to assess whether she is in a position to give them a statement. I have been here at the police station since this morning. Since 7:30am until midday, I was not allowed to speak to her. She told me briefly that the social workers wanted to take her to a place of safety, but that she has refused,” Mokoena told Pretoria News.
It is believed that the police picked Sithole up from a relative’s place at Rabie Ridge, Midrand, and was taken to the police station at Chloorkop in connection with the missing person inquiry opened by the family of her husband, Teboho Tsotetsi, last Thursday.
