Police cannot confirm student activist is safe

Eastern Cape police say they cannot confirm that student activist Vusi Mahlangu is safe. Mahlangu,33, a member of the Black Student Movement (BSM) and spokesperson for the OutsourcingMustFall movement, went missing last week Tuesday.

According to BSM, Mahlangu who was kidnapped on his way to a workers meeting, sent a message earlier on Tuesday, notifying members that he had been kidnapped or arrested and was bleeding.

However on Friday fellow activist Mametlwe Sebei confirmed that Mahlangu had since been found, but was not ready to disclose his location.
