Raymond Sithole (25) of Chibeng Village allegedly trafficked four Zimbabweans to South Africa where he used them for forced labour.
His trial has been set for 4 April where he will be tried at the Seshengo Magistrate Court in Polokwane. He was arrested on January 3 by The Hawks following a tip off. Hawks spokesperson for Limpopo Captain Matimba Maluleke said that Sithole’s victims were aged between 15 and 20 and were illegally transported into South Africa on the promise of good jobs. Maluleke said the four were held hostage by Sithole who would send them to steal and do other jobs without payment. He would severely assault them if they failed to comply with his orders.
