19 Bangladesh nationals rescued from trafficker

19 Bangladesh nationals were saved from traffickers after a dedicated Ehlanzeni District Intelligence Task Team pounced on a wannabe human trafficker on Monday 27 February 2023.

Information was gathered and properly followed by the astute members, which led them to a particular house at Kama Gugu outside Nelspruit.

The members found 19 Bangladesh males in a three bedroomed house. They further found that their cellphones were placed in one plastic bag, which suggested that they had no access to communicate with either their relatives or friends.

As a result a 52-year-old Bangladesh national, who served as the house keeper was arrested for human trafficking and he is due to appear in Nelspruit Magistratesā€™ Court soon.

The 19 found in the house will be charged for contravention of Immigration Act.

Our investigation continues to probe their destination and the kingpins however preliminary investigation suggests that some were enroute to Middleburg while others destined to Johannesburg.

The Acting Provincial Commissioner of the SAPS in Mpumalanga, Major General Zeph Mkhwanazi has appreciated the good work done by the team.
