Cape Town - A 2-year-old girl that was kidnapped about three weeks ago has been found, eNews reported.

Asanda Twala was kidnapped after a family friend took her to shops near her home in Jeppestown.

No ransom was paid for the little girl who appeared to be in good health, eNews said.
A ransom demand of R15 000 was made for Asanda.

Gauteng police said in a media release that the child was left on the ground floor of the building where she lives with her parents.

A family member received a phone call telling them she was there.

Asanda was found, unharmed, but there was no one else around.

The police said that the family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit is investigating the little girl’s kidnapping.

The child was apparently kidnapped by a woman named Talita Nkhanzi, who is also known as Thuli. She is allegedly the ex-girlfriend of the child’s father.
