Police arrest 44 Zimbabwean border jumpers in South Africa


The South Africa Police Service (SAPS) yesterday arrested 44 undocumented immigrants just outside Polokwane. The immigrants are all suspected to be Zimbabwean nationals.

South Africa recently launched an operation to deal with crime during this festive season. The country experiences a high volume of human traffic during the festive season as it is home to millions of migrants from all over the continent. SAPS’ Press and liaison officer, Motlafela Mojapelo said.

The operation was composed of different law enforcement agencies, along the N1 road, a few kilometres outside Polokwane. Eighteen motorists were given spot fines to the total amount of R18 000 for various traffic violations.

The operation commenced at 5 am. This is part of the ongoing festive season operations taking place across the province… These kinds of operations and related activities will henceforth be the daily occurrence to ensure travellers, the community and tourists are safe on the roads.
