It has come to the attention of the police that rumours are circulating that children have been allegedly kidnapped around Umlazi and surrounding townships. We want to confirm to the community that there are no such incidents that have occurred and members of the community should stop spreading these rumours verbally or electronically. Since last week Umlazi police have been responding to these hoax calls on a regular basis. We want to urge those that are causing panic in our communities to stop as their behaviour is placing a strain on police resources. We want to also urge members of the community to remain calm, however the safety of your children should be a priority all year round and we want parents to ensure that their children supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
