Woman charged with human trafficking

CHARGED: Thandeka Badzili

Sir Seretse Khama Police are investigating a case in which a 33-year-old woman was arrested in connection with human trafficking of six men from Ghana.

It is alleged that on the 19th of February at Sir Seretse Khama International Airport (SSKA), immigration officers confronted a certain Ghanaian man at the arrivals point whose names did not match with those on his Visa and passport.

The man was returned home as per the immigration act and his host, Thandeka Tebogo Badzili, was arrested and questioned.

During the investigations Badzili from Siviya village allegedly revealed that she was sent by her boyfriend Isaac Osei Appiah who is a pastor at the Christ Cornerstone Chappell Church in Mogoditshane.

Other five men were found at Tsolamosese and Block 3 Gaborone suspected to be victims of human trafficking.

The investigations allegedly revealed that Appiah who is still at large has trafficked other five victims to eSwatini and they used ungazetted points.

Speaking to The Voice, SSKA Station Commander Mpho Sebako confirmed the incident.

He said during questioning the victim said they saw an advert at their home country about jobs in Botswana.

He said the suspect was arrested and she will be arraigned before court soon while they are in search of her boyfriend.

“The victims say they do not know these people but they promised them jobs here. The suspect says she met the pastor in church last year and they started dating. We are not even sure if the names of the pastor she gave us are correct. The investigations are ongoing and we are hoping that he will be arrested,” said Sebako.
