19 ETHIOPIAN MEN RESCUED FROM CAPTIVITY IN JOHANNESBURG

19 ETHIOPIAN MEN RESCUED FROM CAPTIVITY IN JOHANNESBURG

Media reports confirmed that the Hawks rescued 19 Ethiopian men who were being held captive in a home in Johannesburg.

However, they said they were still investigating whether it was a case of human trafficking or kidnapping.

Spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mulamu said they were tipped off and raided the house around 3pm on Friday afternoon.

“The men have been rescued … There are no visible injuries.”

The Hawks arrested one suspect, who will appear in the Booysens Magistrate’s Court on Monday. They also recovered a pistol and police radio in the house.

Words on the street point primarily to abduction for trafficking. This may be further confirmed when investigations are conducted on the immigration permits of the people abducted.

It is a common trend amongst foreigners to illegally lure people into the country for greener pasture whilst they are enslaved to pay those who bring them in.

However, further investigations will unearth the meat of the story.
