POLOKWANE: Po­lice be­lieve they res­cued 37 Zim­bab­weans from a hu­man traf­fick­ing syn­di­cate and have ar­rested taxi drivers trans­port­ing the vic­tims.

Po­lice spokesman Moat­she Ngoape said they had acted on a tip-off that three taxis were trans­port­ing il­le­gal im­mi­grants from Zim­babwe to Pretoria on Thurs­day. Two taxis were found and po­lice were still search­ing for the third and its driver.

The two drivers and the vic­tims will ap­pear in the Polokwane Mag­is­trate’s Court soon.
