Johannesburg - Seven people were arrested in Umbilo for human trafficking and allegedly using women for prostitution, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Saturday.

Spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane said police were tipped off about a house that was being used as a brothel and raided the premises on Friday afternoon.

"During the operation, five females and two men were found in the house. The key suspects, a manager and her son as well as a security guard, were charged with human trafficking and keeping a brothel," he said.

"The other four were charged with prostitution."

The suspects, aged between 22 and 60, will appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    I wish I knew where. I known about a brother in umbilo for bout 2 years now and the police knew about it and did nothing. So if this is the same house I wonder why this tip off took so long
