Human trafficking has become prevalent in South Africa and the Department of Justice is looking at putting in place legislation that will tackle the rising trend in the country.

The Justice department looks into passing legislation addressing Human Trafficking

The Department of Justice’s Kamogelo Makubu-Wildred says the absence of such a legislation has made it possible for this kind of activity to manifest and thrive in most parts of the country, namely Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Gauteng with Free State having a highest number of prosecuted cases of human trafficking.

Makubu-Wildred says she does not know when the Bill will eventually be passed, but is hopeful that Law makers and Parliamentarians are working very hard on the matter.  Edited By Molebogeng Sebidi
