Another foreign national freed after this happened

In South Africa it seems like criminals are having a stroll in the park. Cases of abductions are being reported in large numbers and little is being done to solve the crisis. It has been noted that foreign nationals and those of Asian descent have been the main targets of the kidnapping syndicates.

They usually target those who are into businesses as they will be after extorting money from them through demanding ransoms. Families and loved ones of the kidnapped victims will be left with no option other than to part with their money in efforts to link up with the victim alive.

Cases of arrests being made of those who are behind the kidnappings have been far and wide.

In a tweet that was shared yesterday by Yusuf Abramjee, one foreign national was finally freed after weeks of being abducted. The circumstances surrounding his release have not yet been disclosed to the media and it is not yet known if his family was made to pay a ransom.

What was only mentioned was that the police spearheaded the operation which resulted in the victim getting released. The victim is a son to one well known foreign national businessman.

The tweet by Yusuf Abramjee read, "Jair Abdula, the son of Mozambican businessman, Salimo Abdula, who was kidnapped last month on the East Rand has been freed during a Crime Intelligence police operation. He was found on a smallholding near Heidelburg.


The Gauteng Province has become the epicenter of kidnappings and it seems like this dirty business is flourishing at the moment. Bheki Cele and his team this time around seem to have managed to put their act together to rescue the victim.

No mention of arrests was made and some members of the public were pleased with the energy that the police put up in this incident.
