After a two-day search, Lilongwe-based businesswoman Jane Nthakomwa has been found alive in Kasungu District, over 100kilometres away from the place of her abduction.
Malawi Police and family sources say Nthakomwa is currently being under medical observation at Kasungu District Hospital.
“She is in deep shock and traumatized. But she is stable,” police official told Nyasa Times
Nthakomwa is said to have been kidnapped along the Area 14 Highway in Lilongwe on Monday evening.
She was returning home from her business office in the City Centre at around 8:00 pm when unknown persons hijacked her car and drove her away along the Kaunda Road just beside the Gateway Mall, with a knife inside it.
“Her kidnappers allowed her to make phone calls to her husband and neighbours, where she explained her situation before all her phones went offline,” reads one of the posts on social media.
Her family appealed to the general public to help in tracing their relative.
Jane’s husband, Shycal Partridge Nthakomwa, said he could not immediately comment.
