Petlane, daughter of Adv Mosotho Petlane from Vaal, who was kidnapped at Vanderbijlpark on the 4th of August 2022, has been found. She was found unharmed and she has been reunited with her family.

Lebo Mvulazana Nhlapo-Mofokeng released a statement.

“Tebadiso Petlane has finally been reunited with her family, unharmed.

It has been 48 hours of confusion, mistrust, and loss of strength.

The past few days were dark, but your prayers, phone calls, house visits, and messages made them brighter. We give glory and praise to the Lord Almighty, who gave us friends and family like yourselves.

Law enforcement agencies, comrades, colleagues, media personnel, and the people of the Vaal and surrounding areas, in one way or the other, you made it possible for the safe return of our beloved daughter.

Thank you for making it all possible.

From the bottom of our hearts, you are appreciated.


Advocate Mosotho Petlane and family”.
