Following claims that Amy' Leigh de Jager's mother could have been allegedly involved in her daughter's kidnapping and return, the little girl's grandfather has slammed the claims.

Christo de Jager, in open letter published by his local community newspaper, the Sedibeng Ster, has cautioned against “assumptions based on pure stupidity” around the case.

Amy-Lee was snatched from her mother's car in front of the school in Vanderbijlpark on Monday morning. She was found on Tuesday morning.

Police have arrested three suspects in connection with the child's kidnapping. Among those arrested was a Grade RR teacher who reportedly is known to the family.

According to reports, the teacher was friends with Amy-Lee's mother. Posts on social media show pictures of the two together, suggesting that the two are friends.

The woman cannot be named until she appears in court.

“Dear South Africa, please wait for the outcome. Refrain from making uninformed statements and allegations. The SAPS did their investigation thoroughly," wrote the grandfather.

" Do you really think that if any of my children were implicated they would be roaming free?" he questioned.

“Some of the voice notes we received are an indication of how sick some of the so-called caring South Africans are.”
