Durban - In an exclusive interview with The Daily News, the man accused of kidnapping Miguel Louw has maintained his innocence.
Phoenix resident Mohammed Ebrahim, 43, now a free man after his bail of R2 500 was paid by his family, flatly denies having anything to do with the Sydenham boy’s death.
He maintains he learnt of Miguel’s death while in prison, where he spent a few weeks after being arrested for the boy’s abduction.
“I was shocked when I heard the news that the boy was dead. People can say what they want to say. I don’t fear. I did nothing wrong,” he said.
Ebrahim was speaking yesterday at a location his family did not want to be disclosed because they fear for their lives.
He was arrested less than a week after Miguel’s disappearance was reported in July.
Miguel's family are reportedly outraged that Ebrahim was able to post bail.
They only discovered that he had been released when a family member spotted him at a butchery in Asherville last week.
