newsThe New Age reports that the OutsourcingMustFall (OMF) movement said it would not be intimidated into halting its campaign, despite the suspected kidnapping of activist Vusi Mahlangu.  

“We remain determined to end poverty wages,” OMF spokesperson Mametlwe Sebei said, adding that “we fear for the worst, but we hope for the best.”  He was briefing the media on Thursday following the disappearance of Mahlangu.  He said they “demand that the government and the security agencies delivers Mahlangu alive.”  Mahlangu was last seen leaving a fellow activist’s home in Mthatha on Tuesday.  The OMF movement said Mahlangu had been deployed to work in the province three to four weeks ago where he was reporting on companies allegedly forcing workers to work at gun point.  He had been informing them of the criminal character of some of the companies in the Eastern Cape.
