Missing Durban woman Sandra Moonsamy found alive

Missing Westville businesswoman Sandra Moonsamy has been found alive, six months after she was allegedly abducted. 


The Hawks have confirmed the arrests of four people. 

Two suspects were arrested in Johannesburg, and two suspects were arrested in Emalahleni (Witbank). 

The mother-of-two was driving to her Westville home at around 9pm in May, when her car was forced off Stapleton Road near the M13. 

The kidnappers bundled the 44-year-old Moonsamy into another vehicle, leaving one of her cell phones in her SUV.  

A massive search was launched and at the time, Hawks officials confirmed they had received an email with a demand for a ransom payment in exchange for Moonsamy, the daughter of prominent businessman, Poonsamy Naicker from Crossmoor Transport. 

Hawks spokesperson, Hangwani Malaudzi says they have limited information at this stage.

“Officially four people have been arrested. The victim has been found and she’s recuperating in hospital and further details will be shared later.”

Meanwhile, sources close to the investigation have confirmed that Moonsamy was found at a home in Witbank.
