Still no sign of Baby Kwahlelo
kidnapped

It has been more than six months since the disappearance of the two-month-old baby Kwahlelo Tiwane in Parow earlier this year, and there is still no sign of him.

Kwahlelo was abducted from his mother, a Khayelitsha resident, in Parow on Thursday 16 January.

Last week Sgt Noloyiso Rwexana, Western Cape police spokesperson, told TygerBurger there are no new developments in the case. She confirmed the child is still missing.

It was alleged that a woman who presented she is a social worker approached the mother of the child a day before the abduction, requesting the child’s birth certificate and clinic card which the individual then copied. The person accompanied the mother and her children to Parow the following day where the child was allegedly abducted by the individual, the police said earlier.

Earlier in the year the police arrested two suspects in connection with the case, an 18-year-old woman from Gugulethu and 22-year-old man from Parow.

The charges against the initial two suspects arrested in the case were withdrawn due to inadequate evidence, according to Rwexana.

She says no other suspects have been arrested. “The investigation is ongoing.”

The matter is being investigated by the police’s family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit (FCS) in Bellville.

Provincial minister of social development, Sharna Fernandes, appealed to the public to assist the police in providing information about the whereabouts of Kwahlelo.

In a statement released earlier Fernandez said social workers can be identified by a Western Cape government name-tag, which should be worn at all times.

The public can also confirm their identity by calling their nearest local department of social development office or the police.

Kwahlelo has a twin brother.
