Kai-isha Meniers was kidnapped one year ago from her pram outside a supermarket in Bishop Lavis, Cape Town when she was only 2 months old. Despite ongoing investigations, the South African Police Service (Saps) has been unable to trace the child and her kidnapper.
The Bishop Lavis Community Policing Forum’s (CPF) Graham Lindhorst expressed his disappointment with the lack of progress in the case and believes they failed the family by not bringing the child back.
Lindhorst expressed his frustration that the case was not being handled with more urgency, adding that if the incident had taken place in a more affluent area, it would have been treated differently. He called on authorities to prioritize the case and put more pressure on Saps to find the child and her kidnapper.
The family of Kai-isha Meniers remains desperate for a breakthrough in the case and is still hoping for answers.
