Speaking to Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive, his mother Thuli Mpetsheni says they have contacted the Chinese consulate with little help and have also been in touch with the Department of International Relations (Dirco).
There is very little help because there was a lockdown. They were not in the office.Thuli Mpetsheni, Alfa Mpetsheni's mother
I called them [Dirco] and they said I must send an email but at the end of the day they were going to give us the number to contact the Shanghai Consulate which we already did.Thuli Mpetsheni, Alfa Mpetsheni's mother
He did mention that maybe he would go to South East China, he didn't mention where. I told him to keep me posted and that was the last time we spoke.Thuli Mpetsheni, Alfa Mpetsheni's mother
