JOHANNESBURG - The woman arrested for kidnapping a two-year-old girl will appear in the Hillbrow Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

In June, Asanda Twala was snatched while being taken to the shops near her Jeppestown home.

She was reunited with her parents late on Tuesday, without any money exchanging hands.

The police's Katlego Mogale said a tip-off led officers to a 23-year-old woman.

"She will be appearing in court tomorrow on charges of kidnapping."

Mogale said the girl was examined by a doctor and was in good health.

The kidnapper had initially demanded a R15,000 ransom.

Meanwhile, two boys who went missing in Reiger Park have also been reunited with their parents.
