South Africa Special Police Unit The Hawks yesterday arrested two Zimbabwean women with dozens of bundles of explosives, blasting cartridges and case fuses worth around R1.2m. Zimbabweans have been making the news in South Africa for all the wrong reasons.

The two women were arrested in Thohoyandou, Limpopo, following a tip-off.

“The team received a tip-off about two women from Zimbabwe who were in possession of explosives destined for Gauteng. The two people matching the description of the suspects were spotted in one of the lodges in Thohoyandou and their movements were constantly monitored,” said Capt Matimba Maluleke.

“The suspects were arrested as they about to board a bus to Gauteng.” The illegal explosives were then found in their possession. The women, who had allegedly entered South Africa illegally, are set to appear in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

They will face charges of unlawful possession of explosives and contravention of the Immigration Act, said Matimba.

The seized explosives were likely destined for the black market where there are highly sought after by criminals. South Africa is plagued by frequent Cash In transit heists which involve the use of explosives.
