PARKTOWN - Gauteng police have taken note of the viral tweet about two women who were allegedly bungled into two sedans at a local night club in Woodmead.

The validity of the tweet was investigated and it can be confirmed that, the two women were not kidnapped but in fact picked up by their next of kin contrary to what has been purported on social media.

On another incident a 33-year-old Kgalalelo Tolo was reported missing after he was last seen leaving the same night club at Woodmead on Friday, 29 April 2022. Unfortunately further investigations revealed that Tolo was allegedly involved in a fatal hit and run accident while apparently walking back to his place of residence. His next of kin has been notified.

The Management of the SAPS in Gauteng cautions social media users to refrain from circulating and spreading unverified messages that seek to cause fear and panic amongst communities.

Members of the public are reminded that there is no waiting period to report a missing person. Missing persons should be immediately reported at the nearest police station.
