Interpol in Malawi to repatriate kidnapped South African girls

An unnamed Malawian woman took the siblings, who are from Mpumalanga‚ from the custody of their grandmother on the pretext of taking them to a better school in the UK before taking them to Malawi in July last year.

According to the grandmother‚ the 14-year-old had learning difficulties and the alleged abductor had offered to take the child to the UK for specialist care the grandmother could not afford.

The South African government news agency reported that preliminary investigations by the department had shown alleged physical abuse and exploitation of the children by the woman.

For months, the grandmother had no contact with the pair, but she kept hoping that the “Samaritan” who offered to take her grandchildren to a better life was looking after them.

But in October, she received a phone call from her grandson that shattered her.

He told her that he and his sister had been kidnapped.

The South African officials said in Lilongwe that the children have been found and “they are safe.”

They have arranged with their Malawians counterparts to repatriate the children back to South Africa,

    There is more inside story to the story – the woman as a Malawian who was allowed by the parents to take the kids to UK and then the kids be found in Malawi unharmed, safe and the kidnappers as the media labelled her is either free or arrested, we are lost – we need an investigative journalist who can bring proper story of the victims and how they were taken from home, what made them to have the interest of studying in UK and not in South Africa? Even if South Africa is rated low on education, it is better off compared to other African and Western Schools in a number of sectors.

    There is a problem of Kudetselana CV (talking bad of others/countries) when there is worse things happen within us which deserve publicity.
