kidnapping remains a serious challenge in Gauteng: Commissioner – SABC News

Gauteng police commissioner Elias Mawela says abduction remains a serious challenge in the province.

He says that between October 1 and December 31, 2021, about 523 cases of kidnappings were reported.

A video has now surfaced on social media in which what appears to be a Vereeniging businessman is abducted outside his shop.

Mawela says Gauteng has witnessed two types of kidnapping, but his team is working the clock to deal with this criminal activity.

“The first type is kidnapping for ransom, taking certain communities. Courier cars are hijacked, they kidnap the driver. But the main purpose is to steal the charge. That, they remove the charge and they let the car down there. Our head “Anti-organized crime in the province has arrested many people, especially in the Winterfield, who were responsible for the robbery of those courier cars.” since Mawela.
