Kidnapped businessman reunited with family

A kidnapped businessman from Cape Town after more than 100 days in captivity has been rescued.

69-year-old Ismail Rajah was found safe and unharmed in the early hours of Wednesday morning at a house in Khayelitsha.

Rajah was kidnapped outside his business premises in Parow in March.

Shortly after the kidnapping ransom demand was made to his family.

Police spokesperson Athlenda Mathe says the family were already on their way to Dubai to expedite the ransom payment when the police was roped in to investigate.

"Four men, two Mozambican nationals and two South Africans between the ages of 30 and 38-years-old were apprehended. Police have confiscated cellphones and various equipment on suspicion of having been utilized by the suspects during the commission of the crime.”

All four suspects are expected to appear before the Parow Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
