ANOTHER brothel was shut down few days after The Hawks’ Organised Crime in North West rescued more than 50 girls in Klerksdorp.
The Hawks provincial spokesperson in Northern Cape, Capt Philani Nkwalase said: “We have shut down an upmarket brothel in Kimberley on Monday. Two brothel owners, Nonsukiswa Dlamini, 36 from Kwazulu-Natal and Nontumelelo Sonqishe, 32 from Eastern Cape were subsequently arrested.
“The premise is said to be rental place from one of the local estate agencies. However, it is unknown whether the owner knew about the activities transpired in the premise.”
Nkwalase added that Pornographic DVDs, condoms and several cellphones which were allegedly used to communicate schedules with their clients were also seized.
“At this stage, none of the women arrested has claimed to have been trafficked and they were subsequently arrested for running a brothel.
“They appeared in Kimberley Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. The case was postponed until December 28 for formal bail application,” he said.
