A 32-year-old man has been arrested and expected to appear at the Witbank Magistrate’s Court today on kidnapping charges.

The arrest follows a police investigation on which NewsHorn reported after men broke into a house at Vosman last month and kidnapped two children, a 13-year-old albino girl and a fifteen month-old baby. In the process of the investigation, police discovered two bodies, at Cullinan and along the N4 Highway.

However police cannot confirm at this stage whether the bodies are those of the kidnapped children, pending the DNA tests and until a postmortem has been performed. The investigation is continuing as police believes the suspect was not alone when the crimes were committed.

“We would like to thank the community for working hand in hand with the police as it led to the arrest of the suspect and to the discovery of the bodies,” said the Mpumalanga Provincial Commissioner, Lt-Gen Mondli Zuma.
