6-year-old Kensington boy reunited with family

Western Cape police have confirmed the safe return of a 6-year-old Kensington boy who was kidnapped on Wednesday.

Shanawaaz Asghar was reunited with his family on Thursday night after he was kidnapped outside his home in Cape Town the previous day.

He was taken by unknown men while on his way to school.

‘’Our investigation is still underway and arrests are yet to be made. It is on this basis that further information regarding the case cannot be disclosed at this stage,’’ said Colonel Andrè Traut, Western Cape’s Provincial Commander: Media Communication.

Hidayatul Islam Primary School governing body member and family spokesperson Dawood Esack says Asghar returned home in good spirits.

"I saw him this morning, I was at the family home earlier this morning but even last night when he came home, he was in good spirits. We must just say that he is fine and unharmed and even this morning he was in good spirits, calm and collected and I gave him a little hug.’’

"Last night when he returned home, he said, 'Tell the principal that I am very happy that I do not need to go to school tomorrow', and that was the spirit of this young man."
