Johannesburg - The 22-year-old woman kidnapped on Tuesday is back at her home in Zola, Soweto, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

Mbali Khumalo was returned to her home on Tuesday afternoon. Seven armed men broke in at 2am on Tuesday morning and kidnapped her, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

“We believe that the men were scared after the media announced her kidnapping and then decided to return her,” said Makhubela.

The Khumalo alleged the men had raped and assaulted her.

She was taken to a local doctor for medical assistance and for counselling.

The woman's neighbours took down the men's registration number when they dropped her off at home.

“The registration number showed that the vehicle belongs to a taxi association in the area,” said Makhubela.

He said the men were still at large but police were searching for them. - Sapa
