The Gauteng police confirmed the discovery while also noting that the kidnappers dumped both in the bushes along the N14 in Diepsloot.

Detailing what happened, the police stated that her driver was tied with a rope but managed to make it to the road to seek help. She related the story to the taxi driver, who then alerted the police.

Police spox police colonel Donald Mdhluli corroborated the story, noting that the police went to the bushes with the driver and taxi, where the municipal manager was found. They were taken to the police station and then to the hospital, from where they are expected to reunite with their families today, Thursday, 28 October.
