“The team received a tip-off about two women from Zimbabwe who were in possession of explosives destined for Gauteng.”

The women arrested for allegedly smuggling explosives worth more than R1m into SA will be spending a few more weeks behind bars, police said on Friday.

Elizabeth Musii, 41, and 27-year-old Endlorene Mpangeri appeared in the Thohoyandou magistrate’s court on Thursday, where their case was postponed to March 9 for further investigation. Not much has been revealed yet about where the consignment of explosives was being taken or what it would have been used for. The Hawks arrested the women on Wednesday after finding them with dozens of bundles of explosives, blasting cartridges and case fuses. The haul was estimated to be worth about R1.2m. “The team received a tip-off about two women from Zimbabwe who were in possession of explosives destined for Gauteng,” said Capt Matimba Maluleke. “The two people matching the description of the suspects were spotted in one of the lodges in Thohoyandou and their movements were constantly monitored. “The suspects were arrested as they were about to board a bus to Gauteng.” The illegal explosives were then found in their possession. The women had allegedly entered SA illegally. They were charged with unlawful possession of explosives and contravention of the Immigration Act, said Maluleke. MORE Read more: Times LIVE

FraudWatchZA The explosives looks like they exploded on them before being caught 🤣🤣🤣 Ya bona laba ba funa idilika jele. They dont do such things in their countries. South Africa is a play ground. Yeah because sa is now a for criminal activity Akunyiwe makunyiwa this government sent to destroy this beautiful country

Behind the bars and get Master's degrees for free. They're still winners regardless LMAO 🤣 they were obviously mules, some people don’t have a shame to use women who are disparate and destitute in this way. “ open up the borders”🙄 Zimbabwe’s ammunition gets syphoned into our country everyday without any intervention. The next thing our policemen get shot 🤷‍♀️

Deport them That is not a woman on the right. Open the borders, south Africans are Xenophobic

IOL_Lifestyle _Lifestyle What was the delay? _Lifestyle Why SA idols - wait a whole year? _Lifestyle Did she even get the car coz wow?!

They look terrified....lock them up Witchcraft with red eyes Xenophobia!! Xenophobia!! With roadblocks every 10km in Zim, these women were not the ones who smuggled. This points out to very big people involved. They were just the last mile to Gauteng Any foreigner committing a crime in a particular country does not deserve the status of that country

Why arrest them let them come a create havoc in our country isn't what the MYANC NathiMthethwaSA HomeAffairsSA Minister wants, thina bemi balelizwe we are tired of these ppl being shoved through our throats by incompetent politicians Open the borders EFFSouthAfrica this is mos kind of things you love and stand for, hey eff are you not going to defend these black women?

Stories like these makes me hate Zimbabwe and really There should be a rule that says if a foreigner is arrested they should be sentenced here but serve their sentence in their country. We can't afford to now buy them food, give accommodation, clothes, etc in prison. They must stay behind bars.!!! Terrorists, they tried to kill our beloved South Africans 🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦.

I knew is this fucken foreigners anc let them to come to our country as they want. They commit most of the violent crime in our country This is a suspected case of human trafficking. Our poor Africa sisters are used by devilish selfish people, and on illegal arrangements. This is sad. Find it hard to believe that they could carry R1.2M worth of explosives on themselves or even hide it.

CIT heists.........thats the ultimate goal including bombing of ATMs. Ive heard enough of this people. Our country is at state of collapse because of these kinds of foreigners You guys are xenophobic. Crime doesn’t have nationality 😂😂😂EFFSouthAfrica. Open borders bazalwane our borders do not exist anymore hence all the illegal activity goes on unabated.

Malema seems to be quite all of a sudden. Here are his sisters. Surely he must have something to say in their defense. Just suprising police managed to arrest them even after tip off Can this two women be released this is a free country to do what ever you want and they are also hard workers

The older one looks like my helper. CIT heists and zama zamas ? How many times did we warn goverment about lama Zizimbane 😡😡😡?!!!!!

Zimbabweans ageyn. This is so bad how came we give them aslyum seekers and they decided to commit crimes in South Africa noooo they should be locked up in jail. Would it not have made sense if the police had allowed the women to board the bus, and continued with their surveillance until they reached their destination? Had they done so, the big fish would be behind bars as we speak.

Look at them 😬

End of an era as AngloGold exits SAThird-largest gold miner sells its last local mining assets to Harmony Gold for about R4.4bn Not a good sign. We need investment not disinvestment ! If people saw what went on in parliament last night why would they want to invest here?

Another tip off there is a company I know that is hiring only illegal immigrants from zim to guard explosives in a mine in Limpopo and the mine belongs to Anglo Is the other one a woman? She is looking like he disguised as a woman This is where a lot of the organised crime comes from! And where is the rest of the crew - I'm sure they will talk, look scared
