Missing Daveyton Boys Reunited with Families After Being Found at Initiation School in Mpumalanga



Four missing were boys found at an initiation school

Four missing boys were found at an initiation school in Dennilton, Mpumalanga, without their parents’ consent, sparking concerns in the community of Daveyton. A case of missing persons was opened at the Daveyton SAPS, leading to investigations that revealed the boys had voluntarily gone to the initiation school, influenced by friends or other individuals. Allegedly, they were kept in the waiting area due to non-payment of an induction amount. Officials from the initiation school reportedly alerted the police about their presence when their parents failed to come forward with payment. Thankfully, the police retrieved the four children, all under 18 years old, and safely returned them home.

Fanie Msimango, the Etwatwa CPF chairperson, expressed concern over the increasing number of children illegally attending initiation schools. He highlighted another recent case involving 16 boys and one girl the police believe to be at initiation schools. During a visit to the Daveyton SAPS, a parent, who wished to remain anonymous, shared his experience of reporting his son missing. The parent emphasised that children often view these schools as an escape route, eloping with friends without considering the negative consequences, treating it as a joke.

Ramoitheki Madikgetla, the Daveyton CPF chairperson, acknowledged the community’s and CPF members’ challenges. They are actively collaborating with the police and the Royal Council of Daveyton to address these social issues and work towards reducing their occurrence.
