Cops put strict charges on them like Kidnapping, extortion, money laundering, possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition, and possession of a hijacked motor vehicle. Mathe says that a businessman, from Lenasia, has been safely reunited with his family three days after he was kidnapped. On his way to work on Tuesday, Luqman Kazi, 34, was apprehended. “A multidisciplinary team was established after the kidnapping to rescue the victim and apprehend the kidnappers. The crew pounced on four specified addresses at the same time during the midnight takedown operation.
The victim was found and saved at the first address, in Lawley. The remaining properties were located in Lenasia. General Khehla Sitole, the police commissioner, praised the crew. Without the dedication and perseverance of members from crime intelligence, the national kidnapping task force, the special task force, organized crime unit, Gauteng flying squad and Gauteng saturation unit, Ekurhuleni metro police, visible policing, and the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, this success would not have been possible.
We also appreciate the help of private security, who continue to serve as our eyes and ears, he added.
