On Friday, the Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation section arrested a 41-year-old woman in Klerksdorp for allegedly trafficking women from Congo to South Africa.
Esther Mwanza’s arrest comes after two women, aged 20 and 31, were found at her home on January 20.
The women claimed to have been trafficked from the Democratic Republic of the Congo to South Africa.
The women also claimed that they have been subjected to labour exploitation since their arrival in the country.
Hawks spokesperson, Captain Tlangelani Rikhotso said: “The victims were interviewed and subsequently taken to a place of safety which was provided by the Department of Social Development.”
Mwanza appeared in the Klerksdorp Magistrate’s Court on Friday where her case was postponed to June 9 for a formal bail application.
