Crime Justice



Zimbabweans At It Again, This Is What The SANDF Found At The Border

The South African National Defence Force always rises to the occasion whenever called upon to defend and protect the sovereignty of South Africa, of course this is especially so if they are not the ones who are being implicated in criminal activities and members of the public have to be careful because there are some officers who are alleged to be working with criminal syndicates while in their position of power.

Once again, members of 1 Special Services Battalion deployed in Madimbo Operational Base confiscated a Quantum Which is approximated to be worth R 150 000, The vehicle was alleged to be carrying illicit Express Royal cigarettes valued at R762 464.

This is not the first time where the perpetrators of crimes have been caught trying to smuggle illicit cigarettes into the country, their cigarettes are favourable to these individuals because they do not go through the duties.

Considering how relatively cheap they make cigarettes in Zimbabwe they easily smuggle them into the country and make a huge killing in terms of profit, because they do not have to pay any kind of duty so they get 100% or 200% profit from the investment that they put in.

That is a total of R 912 464 in confiscated goods, the police are encouraging any members of the public who might have information that could lead to the arrest of suspects who are involved in criminal activities to come forward and give that information so that they can be brought to justice.

It is true that the soldiers are really working hard in order to keep the crime that is happening at our borders at bay, despite the fact that they are overwhelmed by the sheer number of criminals and their relatively little budget that they are offered in order to combat this criminality.

It is also alleged that these syndicates have such deep pockets that they could have these officers under the employment, as well as the top officials of the South African National Defence force especially the ones in charge of the soldiers at the border.
