South Africans are rejoicing after it was announced that Zidan (7), Zayyad (11), Alaan (13) and Zia (15) Moti are back home with their family.


Polokwane, South Africa (11 November 2021) – South Africans have been gripped with concern and terror since the 20th of October 2021, when armed kidnappers took Zia, Alaan, Zayyad and little Zidan Moti while they were on the way to school.

Thankfully, the boys have been returned to the family as of yesterday. The family took to their social media to announce that the boys were safely home with their parents Naazim and Shakira Moti.

Naazim and Shakira have thanked South Africa for spreading the message far and wide, as well as for continued prayers and support for the boys’ safe return.

The Moti’s shared the update through the family’s business page. Take a look below

“The parents of Zia, Alaan, Zayyad and little Zidan, Naazim and Shakira Moti are overjoyed by the return of their four sons. We thank Almighty Allah for accepting the our prayers and the prayers of so many in South Africa.
We wish to express our sincere gratitude to South African Police Services, our political parties, the media, all the social media influencers and everyone who prayed for the safety of our children. We are thankful that they were set free and when we received a phone call to fetch the children we rushed to the scene full of hope. All of South Africa 🇿🇦 supported us and we want to thank one and all for their support and kind prayers. We are looking forward to healing as a family and will appreciate some privacy for a while. We will talk to the media within a few days.

Naazim and Shakira Moti”

This is a very trying time for the family as they navigate their way through the aftermath of the kidnapping. We are sure the family would welcome the continued support and prayers as the boys settle in and cope with what they have endured.

We wish them all the best for the future.
