KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said an operation by Emanguzi police near Kosi Bay border control led to the arrest of eleven illegal immigrants, aged between 19 and 39, at the Mozambique border.
The suspects were charged for contravening the Immigration Act.
Police further executed a warrant of arrest which led to the capture of a 32-year-old man.
“He was sought by police for a case of reckless and negligent driving that was committed during November 2016 in Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng. The suspect has a number of serious cases pending against him. He was caught attempting to cross the border on route to Mozambique with friends. The suspect was transported to Gauteng to answer for his crimes,”Gwala said.
Police operations also led to the recovery of a vehicle in Thengane area.
