JOHANNESBURG - Police have said two children who were allegedly kidnapped from Mpumalanga and trafficked to Malawi will be brought back home today.

The brother and sister were reportedly kidnapped by a woman claiming to be a retired teacher who promised their grandmother she would find them jobs in the United Kingdom.

The police's Solomon Makgale said they're working with their counterparts in Malawi to determine if other South African nationals could have been taken.

"We've used information through Interpol South Africa to say that there are children in Malawi and those children had been kidnapped. The children have been found and they are safe. We've arranged with our counterparts in Malawi to make arrangements so that we can go and collect the children."
