"Mbali's mother knows nothing about what happened. I am the one who stays with her and we were shocked to hear the reports that she was back. Do you think she would be crying like this if Mbali was around?
"People are talking, saying that I played a part in Mbali's disappearance. But you know what, let them talk. God will answer for me one day," Sibisi said.
However, Dlamini insisted that Mvungande was taken to Thelle Mogoerane Hospital in the area by her relatives.
Meanwhile, Mvungande's cousin, Zandile Jiyane, who had taken to social media to plead for assistance in ensuring her safe return, was upset yesterday that people believed she had fabricated the story for fame and attention.
Some people had taken to her social media pages to throw insults and accuse her of wasting their time.
Jiyane said: "I was trying to help like anyone who has a missing relative would."
