CAPE TOWN - Eight men, including a police officer, will appear in the Protea Magistrates Court in Soweto today on kidnapping charges.

The men were arrested on Wednesday after they allegedly abducted a 32-year-old man in Lenasia and demanded a R90,000 ransom from the man's family.

The police's Kay Makhubela says, "They led us to Tembisa where we also found other suspects. We also found out that one of the suspects is a police officer."
