A policewoman who was missing after accepting a lift was found with her hands and feet tied along a road in Mpumalanga.
An ambulance came across Const. Baswabile Mildred Silowe, 26, on the road near Calcutta, said Brig. Leonard Hlathi, provincial police spokesman.
“Silowe, who lives in Casteel, went to work in Lydenburg by taxi on Sunday afternoon. At the Bushbuckridge Mall, where she had to take a second taxi, an unknown man offered her a ride. She let her sister know about it, ”says Hlathi.

“When she regained consciousness, she was between bushes and her hands and feet were tightly bound. All her belongings were stolen. She was able to move to a road nearby, where she was spotted by the passing ambulance.
“The police were called immediately. She was taken to hospital and meanwhile discharged, “said Hlathi.
