Police in Mmabatho and Mahikeng have launched a search for two boys who were allegedly kidnapped in the evening on Tuesday, 5 March 2019 while playing at a park in Montshiwa Location. 


It is alleged that Onalenna Molehabangwe and Gontse Cholo both aged 10 were kidnapped by three occupants of a Volkswagen Polo. According to information available at this stage, reports suggest that the victims who are both from Extension 38, were in the company of another boy when the suspects lured the victims to the car with potato chips.
