Mpumalanga police are investigating a case of kidnapping after two Pakistanis were trafficked to the county via Malawi and Mozambique.
One of the victims was rescued by the police from a certain house in Mbombela, meanwhile, the second one was released by the suspect after his family paid a ransom.
Mpumalanga police Spokesperson, Selvy Mohlala says the alleged kidnapper managed to evade arrest following a high-speed chase with the police.
His vehicle was found parked at the basement parking of iLanga Mall.
“The trafficker is still at large. However, his identity is known to the police as a businessman in the Schoemansdal area. A safe house where the victims were held was identified and led to the arrest of an undocumented Pakistani national who was identified by one of the victims as the safe housekeeper, responsible to allow them to communicate with their families.”
