Kidnapped children in PLK are heartbreaking. For the youngest, today is a special day

South African special forces and intelligence have so far been unsuccessful in rescuing brothers kidnapped on their way to school in Polokwane. South African children are no longer safe, and some have been devastated by their peers' unexpected disappearance. Today, South Africans realize that the youngest of them is turning seven in these appalling circumstances. It's tragic that he won't be able to spend this wonderful day with his family. One of their relatives posted on Twitter that their youngest child will turn seven years old today.

"Under such dreadful circumstances, our little angel Zidan turns seven tomorrow. Please return our children to us. We ask Allah to please send our precious lads back home today." Four children, aged three to ten, and their family driver were kidnapped and their vehicle stolen in the beautiful area of Bendor, Polokwane, Limpopo.

The incident happened this morning when the children were being escorted to school, according to Mabotse Mothiba, a local CPF leader. The hijacked vehicle, on the other hand, was recovered abandoned on the N1 northbound. The victims were allegedly thrown into a silver Toyota Fortuner and driven south on the N1.

It's still unknown whether the hijackers have made any demands or whether a ransom has been asked. The police have confirmed that the incident occurred.

Mothiba has urged members of the public to help the police by providing information.

"Right now, we're looking for two boys in a silver-grey Fortuner truck, and there are also suspicions that two additional cars are involved." The police, on the other hand, are looking into that information. However, we are pleading with the general people to assist the police if they see or come across the vehicle with the four children inside. They haven't yet removed their uniforms. We urge anyone who sees them to call 911 and report them to the authorities."
