Omar Carrim was kidnapped on the 3rd of August 2017
With Pretoria businessman Omar Carrim missing for more then 102 days and despite his family paying a huge ransom for his return, his whereabouts remain unknown.
The 76-year-old was kidnapped on August 3 soon after leaving his business, Home Hyper City, in the CBD.
A massive search was launched and police later found his burnt-out Mercedes at the Schurwerg Mountains in Pretoria West.
Family spokesperson Yusuf Abramjee says Carrim is not well and the family is making another appeal to the kidnappers for his release.
“We have repeatedly made an appeal to the kidnappers to release him, but they have not. A report in a weekend newspaper suggested the family has paid a large sum of ransom some weeks ago, and yet they are not freeing him.”
Abramjee says the recent kidnappings of high profile businessman are of great concern.
“I’ll be taking up the matter again with the minister of police Fikile Mbalula, to see how law enforcement, not only in South Africa but internationally can clamp down and stop these thugs from continuing to intimidate and terrorise our communities.”
The Carrim family have called on South Africans to pray for the safe return of their father.
