This police chief making these announcements does not know the difference between human trafficking and human smuggling. All the cases he cited are about human smuggling and not trafficking.

Dmao 1 month ago

Human trafficking is a harmful practice whereby ppl are forced or cheated to migrate for sale into slavery, prostitution, body parts trade, etc. Human smuggling is whereby an agent helps aspiring migrant to cross the border for a fee. The agent causes no harm on the aspiring migrant. It's a pure criminal business transaction

Human trafficking comes in when people are possessed for own benefit like forced prostitution and labour and in most cases they will be kidnapped or given false information

Smuggling of humans is a crime to all those involved coz they would have agreed and pay to be taken to their destination because they will be without proper documentation.

yah nhasi madzidza 😂 apa ndakuitirai BEAM kudzidza for free, yes Pindula is not jus for fighting for political space. we have to embrace each other coz we fighting for the same need, food on the table...
