Moti brothers reunited with their parents

The four Moti brothers have been reunited with their parents after they were kidnapped three weeks ago.

In an emotional post on the family’s Auto Moti Facebook page, Naazim and Shakira, said they were overjoyed to be reunited with their boys.

They said that they will speak to the media “within a few days” and have asked for privacy.

“We thank Almighty Allah for accepting our prayers and the prayers of so many in South Africa…. We are thankful that they were set free and when we received a phone call to fetch the children we rushed to the scene full of hope.

“All of South Africa supported us and we want to thank one and all for their support and kind prayers. We are looking forward to healing as a family and will appreciate some privacy for a while,” read the post.

They have also expressed their “sincere gratitude” to the South African Police Services, political parties and everyone who prayed for the safe return of the brothers.

Police have confirmed that the brothers were “safely reunited” with their parents on Wednesday.

Zia, Alaan, Zayyad and Zidan were on their way to the Curro Heuwelkruin school in Dalmada, in Polokwane, when they were taken on October 20.

According to the family driver, they were blocked off by two vehicles at the Tzaneen bypass. He claimed that about seven men, dressed in white overalls, got out of the vehicles. The men then fired at the BMW.

The men allegedly forced the boys out of the BMW and into a Mercedes Benz and drove off. The suspects’ vehicles were last seen travelling on the R81 out of Polokwane.

The motive behind the kidnapping forms part of a police investigation.
