Cop arrested for kidnapping

2010-10-23 07:45

A warrant officer at the Rabie Ridge police station was arrested yesterday for alleged kidnapping, according to Limpopo police.

The arrest was the fourth in connection with the kidnapping of 32-year-old Nkiti Mashishi, said Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.

Two women, aged 26 and 43, and a 28-year-old man were also nabbed after they, along with the policeman, allegedly assaulted Mashishi in Flora Village and forced him into the boot of their car.

The suspects have told police that Mashishi was dropped off at the Kranskop tollgate, but he has not been seen since the incident on October 16.

The policeman is the husband of the 43-year-old woman.

The incident followed a complaint by the mother of the 43-year-old woman that Mashishi had broken her windows after a fight over payment for garden work he had done for her.

The four were due to appear in the Matlala Periodical Court on Monday.

Investigations into Mashishi’s whereabouts were continuing.
