South Africa’s kidnapping mastermind arrested

The man is believed to be behind multiple high-profile kidnappings and ransom demands across Gauteng and Mozambique.
SAPS Colonel Athlenda Mathe says the arrest was made on Wednesday afternoon. Drugs were also found during the arrest.

“An intelligence-driven operation led the Task Team to an identified address in Brackenhurst where the team pounced on the alleged kingpin and his three associates. At this address, police found and seized three high powered vehicles, 6 000 tablets of Mandrax, hard cash, a receipt of sale for a R1,9 million property in Bryanston, several high-end luxury brand clothing.”

Police say the cash, drugs and property were all allegedly acquired thanks to money from ransom payments. Three other men believed to be involved in the syndicate were also arrested.
