3 arrested for robbery and kidnapping an Ethiopian man

The police have arrested three men believed to be part of a syndicate involved in robbing and kidnapping business people.
Earlier this week, the group kidnapped an Ethiopian businessman and held him captive in a house in Kensington for two days.
It’s understood they demanded a ransom from his family for his safe return.
The police's Lungelo Dlamini says the arrests come after several leads.
“He was taken from the OR Tambo International Airport to a house in Kensington and while he was being held up, the suspects used his cards to buy luxuries, including jewellery.”
