Zimbabwe nationals trafficking Malawians to SA

86

Zimbabweans at Beit Bridge in South Africa have been accused of trafficking people including Malawians to South Africa with the aim of robbing them of their money.

Malawi24 could not independently verify the authenticity of the story but according to a message making rounds on Whatsapp, Zimbabwean nationals pretend to help desperate illegal foreign nationals especially those who use the border post to illegally enter into South Africa in order to steal from them.

The message warns illegal immigrants not to use taxis or pickups since the dangerous criminals masquerade as innocent drivers to lure their prey.  

South Africa Police“There are a lot of Ndebele and Shona guys with pickup, trucks and Quantum combis who are robbing people money and phones. They will kidnap you and demand R3000 after they have taken you to a garage or container in Joburg [sic],” reads part of the message.

The criminals also deceive travellers that they are Tanzanians or Malawians so that people should trust them yet they are nothing but thugs.

“They will say let your relatives or frends deposit money in shoprite store. If noone deposits anything they will kill you and sell body parts to Sangomas (traditional healers). Also those who are coming to stock things in Messina there are gangs of conmen and conwomen who pretend to be selling Gold, Diamond and other stuff, they pretend as if they do not know Shona or Ndebele and they say they come from Tanzania or Malawi after that they sweet talk you until you give them all your money [sic],” reads another part of the statement.

  6. People say it’s about education I totally disagree.Even if you are educated you can not just go so South Africa and get a skilled job,leave alone in malawi people are educated but thier buts are getting dry seated at home.life isn’t easy anymore everywhere.if citizens suffer what more so called Makwerekwere as they call us in SA.

  7. This is true, I hv been in ZM side for 2 months last yr and I hv seen en learned a lot around this boarder. Amabwela ngati gud pipo en helpers koma zili njoka. Amakuuzani kufka Jo’burg R250 koma mukafka amasintha en start demanding R1000 to R1500. To my fellow Malawians amene mukupita ku SA plz avoid this thieves en killers. They r capable of doing anything beating, rape, stealing in short they r inhuman. Their camp is in Hill brow mu Jo’burg. Am talking thru experience, mlamu wanga zinamuonekela, plz take care.

  9. This started long-time ago,since 2001,so tell me you good commenters,how dose this relate with law strict?.Don’t politicise everything plz.My request to the government;we are seeking your hand to address this issue with Zimbabwean president hon R Mugabe.

  10. There is a ring leader called Sotcha with a quatum doing that in collaboration with other zimbabweans.we walked for over 50 kms from beitbridge to Messina at night using dangerous unchattered routes after being snatched of cell phones and cash. We were packed in a quantum like buns travelling the whole night up to Jhb. Luckily no-one was murdered .The buses which load people from warehouse in Bt are the most connected to this.They dump the passengers at beitbridge.

  11. Its true makamaka bus ya munorurama ndiyomwe ikupanga zimenezo kwambili…ndipo akakutenga akumalanda ma phone ndi ndalama zomwe ine ndinaziona pa 3 January kma sikuti ndine mbuli kma Malawi wayaka moto

  12. By civic education I mean to motivate the society so that we find a platform to know our rights and the consititution of our country. We need not to turn a blind eye while we see our country being turned to BANANA REPUBLIC

  13. Teach your children to focus on school ,a lot Malawians r suffering in SA bcoz ,they don’t understand English ,don’t have any skills ,these traspoters just take them from Malawi & leave them at the border,these Zimbabweans they take them to joburg & lock them in a room after that they demand a certain amount of cash if they refuse they beat them badly ,don’t think SA is simple

    Hello my name is Lizzy Joe, I want to give a testimony about my HIV virus that was cured by a great spell caster. Since last 16 years I have being a HIV positive patient. I never think I we live long again and am so grateful to Dr Greg Carlos who help me cured my HIV virus last 3 weeks. I was in a great pain so I told one of my best friends about my situation; she told me that there is a great spell caster that can cure my VIRUS. I asked her if she had his contact, she gave me his email and phone number, I emailed him and he talked to me and he perform the necessary things and he told me that after 14 days, I should go for a test. Which I did, when the doctor told me that am now a HIV negative I couldn’t believe myself I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on planet earth, so i contacted him and thanked him for is good work.

  18. Inequality, economic transformation, capitalisation and civic education are the serious problems we are as a society facing in our beloved country. Getting harassed by your own country is just like being punished by your own mother. How the hell can we asked to show off R3,000 in cash before we cross the border, what crime did we commit? Is it not the right of every human to travel to the country they like? We strongly condemn the person who introduced this evil idea, shame on him!

  26. The root cause of this might be not because they have no travelling documents but the hard restrictions the Malawi government did put to the Malawi nationals travelling to RSA. Its only Malawians among all the nationals who are surposed to show R3000.00 on the border when getting into RSA and they say that issue was proposed by Malawi government in trying to hold back Malawians so that they shouldn’t meet the requirements to go and find greener pastures in RSA. We take the blame not Zimbabwe.
