Speaking to Joanne Joseph Daughter of Julia Dingiswayo Karabo Dingiswayo disputes the story.

All that I know is that my mom is ok and she is fine. And the whole story regarding her being part of a group of women who were abducted is actually false.

He adds that her mother was missing but was not a part of that group of people.

She intentionally isolated herself from her family and her friends, so for that story to be mashed up with her disappearance, like today, I got the shock of my life.

She says the journalists didn't speak to her mother and her mom was found on Sunday night in Johannesburg by her stepdad.
