SAD NEWS: South African student dies because mother couldn’t afford ransom fee

His captors ultimately decided to kill him because his mother was unable to provide the ransom that they required. The loss of her son, a young boy, who was discovered dead in the bushes has left the boy’s mother inconsolable.

His captors ended up killing him because his mother was unable to provide the ransom money that they required. It was only 100 Rands.

SAD NEWS: South African student dies because mother couldn’t afford ransom fee

After the son had been reported missing, this transpired. He was taken hostage, and his captors made a demand over the phone for a certain sum of money. Will there ever be a time when one does not hear about a person who has gone missing or been killed in South Africa? Will there ever be a day when such news does not make the news? It would appear that the rate of crime is getting worse with each passing day.

Children are kidnapped on a daily basis, and if there is one thing that is certain, it is that they are not merely being kidnapped; rather, it is all about some of the children. Some people who kidnap do so with the intention of blackmailing the victim’s family and demanding ransoms in exchange for the victim’s safe return.

It is said that the person who kidnapped the Moti brothers made off with millions of dollars in ransom money, just like what happened in that other case. This is one of the reasons why there are so many cases of kidnapping in today’s world.

After that, there is a very heartbreaking account of a young boy who was murdered because his mother lacked the financial means to pay a ransom for him. Lukhololwam Mkontwana, an eight-year-old boy from Nyanga in Cape Town, was discovered dead on September 27th, the day his body was discovered. Since the 23rd of September, he had not been seen.

The mother of Lukhololwam was contacted by the kidnappers, who demanded a ransom payment. On the other hand, Lukhololwam’s mother did not have the necessary funds to fulfill their requests. After some time had passed, his body was discovered in a bush where it had been hiding for some time. At this point, there has not been a single person taken into custody by the authorities.

This young boy gave his life for a cause that he had no understanding of before he passed away. If the police do not use this instance as evidence that kidnappers will never be able to escape justice, the number of kidnappings will increase.

This is due to the fact that after hearing this story, parents will have second thoughts and be willing to pay any price to ensure their children’s safe return. There are some people who have no compassion. Who would want to take the life of such a young child? Please, all of you who are my people, pray for the protection of your children in a world where the legal system is already failing us. God alone is able to keep us safe.

CRIME EXPERTS SUGGEST THAT THE RECENT INCREASE IN KIDNAPPING CASES COULD BE THE BEGINNING OF A NEW TREND IN CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.


Herman Bosman, an expert in the field of kidnapping, has stated that the recent increase in cases demonstrates the level of desperation that criminals are willing to descend to.

In South Africa, between the months of January and March of this year, there were over 3,300 reports of people being kidnapped, according to the most recent crime statistics.

When compared to the same time period the previous year, this represents an increase of 1,580 cases.

There are many different types of kidnappings, including victims who are taken hostage during a hijacking and people who are taken in exchange for a ransom.

According to experts in the field of criminal investigation, the recent uptick in kidnapping cases suggests that this tactic may have become the norm among criminals.

And despite the fact that the South African Police Service has advised families not to pay any ransom in order to secure the release of loved ones, desperate family members tend to give in to the demands made by criminals.

Herman Bosman, an expert in the field of kidnapping, has stated that the recent increase in cases demonstrates the level of desperation that criminals are willing to descend to.

“The idea that it’s a profitable business to kidnap and demand money, that’s definitely fueling this,” Bosman said, referring to the current state of the economy. “There’s been a lot of successes, but we need to see more of that in order to curb this and to identify the perpetrators.”

Bosman also stated that the responsibility of reducing kidnappings, as well as any other crime, should not fall solely on the shoulders of the police. He emphasized the importance of the communities playing their part in the investigation of the criminals.
