Umrah, a religious pilgrimage to Mecca, holds immense significance for Muslims around the world. It is a time of spiritual reflection and devotion, and many individuals save for years to fulfill this sacred journey. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous individuals take advantage of this deep faith and exploit innocent people for personal gain.

Shahid Davids, the owner of New Age SA Travel, was accused of swindling numerous individuals who had entrusted him with their Umrah travel arrangements. The allegations range from taking money for Umrah packages and failing to deliver on promises, to providing subpar accommodations and transportation, leaving pilgrims stranded and distressed.

Davids landed at Cape Town International Airport before 6pm with Qatar Airways from Doha. He is wanted by several Capetonians after he allegedly swindled them out of thousands.

Defrauded victims and their families stood waiting for Davids to exit from the international arrivals wing of the airport.

On December 27, 36 people, young and old, from around Cape Town were intending to leave the country to perform the sacred pilgrimage of Umrah. However, this never happened as they were left stranded at the airport after their flights had been cancelled.
