According to the Hawks, a man in his forties who was found guilty of bringing explosives into South Africa was sentenced to fifteen years in jail. The incident occurred in Rustenburg.

Motsi Wilfred Nhamo was found guilty of his crimes and given a sentence on Tuesday at the Musina Magistrate's Court. According to Captain Matimba Maluleke, a spokeswoman for the Hawks, Nhamo was taken into custody on May 30 of last year in Beitbridge. This information was provided by the Hawks. According to Maluleke, Nhamo was taken into custody as a consequence of intelligence that indicated he was importing explosives into South Africa from Zimbabwe.

"Members of the Hawks Serious Organised Crime Investigation received information on May 30 of that year 2021 regarding a person who was trafficking explosives from Zimbabwe into South Africa,"

The Hawks were able to pull off a successful covert operation with the help of members of the Tactical Response Team and Musina Vispol."

The individual who matched the description was spotted roaming about while carrying baggage at the Beitbridge port of entry. The team found detonators with a total worth of R110,000 once they had him under arrest and searched him. "Nhamo was arrested and remanded in police custody until he was convicted and sentenced by the Musina Magistrate's Court today, May 17," he claimed. "The court found him guilty and handed down his punishment." The court came to the conclusion that he was guilty and then gave down his punishment.
