- SAPS has increased policing in light of these abductions and has increased its visibility especially in the affected areas.
- A spokesperson for the Department of Education in the Western Cape said the two students who were abducted had been returned and they had resumed school
- Parents and children have been warned to be on high alert and exercise extreme caution particularly when dealing with strangers
Police and school authorities are on high alert in the Western Cape. Parents and children have been equally vigilant. This comes in the wake of recent school abductions which happened in District Six. Two school children, one from primary school and one from high school were recently abducted and drugged. They have since been returned and have resumed learning.
Information obtained by Briefly.co.za suggests that the perpetrators target school kids and bundle them into a white van. The kids are then drugged, it is not yet clear what transpired after their abduction as that information has not been released. The incidents reported have been centred in the Zonnebloem and surroundings areas. Social workers have visited the area and the schools of the two victims to provide counselling and and support. MEC for Education Debbie Schäfer is urging pupils and parents to be vigilant
