Terrifying Abduction Shakes Harare: 22 ECD Pupils from David Livingstone School Kidnapped
Harare was thrown into a state of shock and disbelief yesterday as news broke of a harrowing abduction involving 22 Early Childhood Development (ECD) pupils from David Livingstone Primary School.
The incident unfolded when a kombi driver, responsible for ferrying the children from school to their homes in Kuwadzana, deviated from the usual route, leading to a series of chilling events.
According to reports from The Herald, the nightmare came to an end when a vigilant motorist made a startling discovery in Macheke. The stranded children were found in a state of distress after the kombi ran out of fuel, prompting the motorist to immediately contact the police. The children, who were in ECDA and B classes, were swiftly taken to Marondera Hospital for a comprehensive medical examination to assess their well-being.
In a swift response, the police acted upon receiving the report and apprehended the kombi driver believed to be responsible for the abduction. The motive behind this distressing incident remains unclear, intensifying the sense of unease among the community. Authorities are actively interviewing the driver in an effort to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The investigation has uncovered a troubling detail—some parents in Kuwadzana had been regularly paying the kombi driver for transportation services.
This revelation has raised questions about the driver’s intentions and the extent of his involvement within the community. As the community grapples with the shock and horror of the incident, they anxiously await a comprehensive statement from the police regarding the ongoing investigation.
