Police say an article carried by a media house in the East Rand in Gauteng which suggests there have been arrests in an alleged kidnapping of the Moti brothers case is misleading.
The police’s Brigadier Vish Naidoo says the police distances itself from the said article.
“The SAPS is again requesting that matters which are likely to place the lives of people at risk be handled with utmost sensitivity.”
After almost two weeks, there is still no clue on the whereabouts of the Moti brothers following their kidnapping in Polokwane.
The Moti brothers, 15-year-old Zia, 13-year-old Alaan, 11-year-old Zayyad and 6-year-old Zidan were kidnapped on 20 October after the car they were being driven in en-route to school was cut off by two others along the Tzaneen bypass before seven heavily armed men dressed in white overalls made off with the boys.
National police task teams including private Polokwane based security companies are following up on a number of leads and doing all they can to determine the whereabouts of the siblings.
