The five suspects arrested by the Hawks in connection with human trafficking in two provinces are expected to appear in court on Monday.
Three men were arrested in Rustenberg in the North West while two were nabbed in Kuruman in the Northern Cape on Sunday.
The five were arrested during a Hawks operation and the cases are believed to be linked and are facing human trafficking charges.
