56 illegal immigrants caught in overloaded 22 seater mini-bus

Modimolle traffic officers have intercepted and impounded a 22 seater mini-bus that was transporting 56 illegal immigrants who were travelling from Zimbabwe to Gauteng province.

Limpopo Transport and Community Safety MEC Makoma Makhurupetje has commended the traffic officers saying overloading is a serious violation of traffic laws and one of the causes of serious accidents on the roads.

In September this year, traffic officers intercepted a truck carrying 87 illegal Malawians who were travelling to Durban through Polokwane.

The driver of the mini-bus has been arrested and is expected to appear in court soon.
Makhurupetje says the department of Home Affairs will attend to the issue of illegal immigrants accordingly
