SOTHO PHOTO CONTEST WINNER (2016)
The photo shows a scanner image produced at Beitbridge Border Post which
resulted in the busting of a human trafficking syndicate. The human trafficker
had the nerve to expose the illegal immigrants hiding in the vehicle’s compartment to
radiation in the false hope that they would be smuggled across the country’s border
with South Africa. Beitbridge Border Post is the busiest port South of the Sahara. The
introduction of non-intrusive inspection equipment in 2003 as part of the Authority’s
digitalisation and modernisation efforts continues to pay dividends.
