Limpopo police have apprehended three suspects in connection with a distressing human trafficking incident. The arrests took place in Polokwane on Friday following the discovery of three women, believed to be Ethiopian nationals, concealed within a hotel room.

Reports suggest that the women’s passports lacked official stamps, indicating their unlawful presence in the country. As a result, both the suspects and the victims were taken into custody for further investigation.

According to Police spokesperson Malesela Ledwaba, preliminary findings indicate that the women were transported from Musina in the Vhembe District and were en route to Gauteng Province, despite their lack of valid passports. The apprehension of the three males involved sheds light on the alarming issue of human trafficking and underscores the efforts made by law enforcement to combat this heinous crime.

With ongoing investigations, authorities aim to unravel the full extent of the operation and ensure that justice is served. The incident serves as a reminder of the urgent need for concerted efforts to combat human trafficking, protect vulnerable individuals, and bring perpetrators to justice.
