Korkie, the kidnap, the Ransom and a big fat rat....

10 February 2014, 10:14
When a charity such as 'gift of the givers' are involved in negotiations for a man held hostage. I cannot help but be suspicious.
What charity of any kind would consider 1 man's problems. Especially if that problem entailed a R 35 Million payout?
I mean, lets be honest, if your core purpose was to help people, Then R 35 Million could buy plenty plates of food or offer some decent relief to a charitable organization.
The fact that these "givers' Where quick to offer help in Syria, Malawi, all over the world yet we have plenty in need right here is SA. 
They claim to have given 1 Billion rand in aid so far?
Who is funding these chaps ?
Could the actual charity have ties with Al queda ?
Seems possible, 
If you were to kidnap somebody, why kidnap somebody you knew never had the money you asked for ?
I mean, Its a long shot and plenty effort involved. 
Why kidnap somebody unless you were certain there may be money raised for that person ?
In South Africa we do not think much of teachers, Just see how much they get paid.
In Aussi land or New Zealand teachers earn more than high earning artisans, So why kidnap a Safrican teacher teaching in Yemen?
Does not add up, we have had thousands of mercenaries working in Iraq, No kidnaps that I know of.
There must be market for kidnapping, But not for South African teachers.
We had a doctor kept in Saudi Arabia under some negligence cause, The media did more than government did, I did not hear of the Gift of the givers saying anything about that ?
No ransom was needed, yet it did seem he was unjustly accused by what we read.
Now after the deadline, I see his wife asks them to please set him  free or, listen to this, continue negotiations?
If I was kidnapped, My partner may be happy yo but jokes aside, who would ask for continued negotiations instead of insisting and begging purely for his release ?
Especially if you did not have R 35 Million Rand.
Seem to me that the 'kidnappers' , Gift of the givers and this wife have some expectation of money changing hands ,
Why ask for continued negotiations ?
Yes i know they threatened to kill him, But if you did not have the R 35 Mill, what could you do ? and what could you possibly negotiate except explain to the kidnappers that they have made a mistake. They kidnapped the wrong guy, we don't have money guys .
I smell a rat and I hope more gets revealed.
Special note : If the Gift of the givers are totally doing good, then I apologize upfront. But I suffer to support any charity across borders, especially when we have 25 % unemployed and plenty needed locally.
