It is said that the accused offered the two human beings at the price of K2, 000,000.00.

“The reporter agreed to buy those human beings by tricking the suspects that he don’t have cash in hand. Then the reporter told the suspects to come on June 23 at about 10:00hrs to receive half of their payments.

“Since the reporter was shocked with the case, he then decided to tip the police officers about the issue and on the said day Detective Sub Inspector Mkhalipi and his party went to the reporter’s house for ambush in order to gather more information and to arrest the suspects.

“At the reporter’s house the police officers were given a room near the living room so that they were able to hear all the conversations to be made, and arrest them. The suspects came to the reporter’s house and started conversing their business without their knowledge of the presence of the officers in the house. Later on the police officers arrested the suspects after hearing the conversation, and the victims were seen at their villages,” said a police statement (NS/SR/62/06/2016) that we have seen.

The suspects will be brought before the court of law soon to answer a case of attempting trafficking in person which is contrary to section 21 sub section 1
