A Johannesburg woman was recruited under false pretenses to travel from Johannesburg to Cape Town‚ where she was enslaved by her captor.

Her ordeal involved her being forced‚ against her will‚ into prostitution.

He said her alleged captor‚ aged 36‚ appeared briefly at Bellville Magistrate’s Court for alleged human trafficking on Thursday‚ after his arrest on Tuesday.

Nkwalase said after being lured to Cape Town‚ the woman‚ aged 37‚ “was received by the alleged suspect‚ kept against her will in Park Villas‚ Bellville‚ and forced into a life of drugs and prostitution from 5-21 January this year”.

“The matter was reported to the Hawks for investigation after the victim approached a law enforcement officer in Bellville and asked for assistance. The victim was put in a place of safety and further investigation by the Hawks eventually secured the identity and arrest of the suspect.”

Her alleged captor was refused bail and so remains in custody pending his next appearance on July 2.

More arrests of such evil doers are imminent‚ said Nkwalase.

President Yoweri Museveni has ordered the refunding of 1% percent mobile money tax paid by Ugandans.

In a statement issued on a social media platform , Museveni insists that the 1 per cent tax which he ordered to be reduced to 0.5 percent last week was passed in error and he signed the bill knowing it had an error.

The mobile money tax and social media tax which triggered massive outcry were effected at the start of 2018/19 financial year.

“I signed the law with the error because we could not delay the other measures. However, parliament, when it reconvenes, will be requested to correct it. The ones whose deductions had been made on the basis of 1% should have their money reimbursed,” said Museveni.

Apart from salary earners and those who use banks, Museveni said the earnings of many other Ugandans are not known. He revealed that each day, $52 million moves around in the form of mobile money that translates into $19 billion a year.

The sentences can be appealed.

An investigation found that doctors, medical workers and intermediaries were involved in multiple incidents of illicit organ transplants and harvesting of human organs.

The probe found that the defendants exploited poor Egyptians who sold their organs.

Egypt prohibits the sale of human organs under a 2010 law but some Egyptians, driven by poverty, offer to sell theirs to make ends meet.
