Amy’Leigh’s alleged kidnappers in court

What we know so far: 


  • Amy’Leigh was kidnapped to “save” Tharina Human’s daughter.  Clayton Motloung, the investigating officer, told the court that when he arrested Human, she said a Nigerian man had threatened to kidnap her 8-year-old daughter over money owed.
  • The three accused initially planned to kidnap Human – a teacher at de Jager’s school – in the hope that her family would pay the ransom. They then allegedly decided to stage the kidnapping of a close family member, knowing that Human’s brother would “bail that person out”.
  • The African National Congress Women’s League in Sedibeng demonstrated outside the Vanderbijlpark Magistrates Court where the kidnapping case of Amy’Leigh De Jager was being heard. The Women’s League’s Fetty Mnguni said they were calling for no bail. “We are saying no bail to the abductors. We are not going to allow our children and women to be victims of abuse and child kidnapping. We are saying no bail today, no bail at all.”
