Johannesburg - Contraband goods valued at about R23 000 were confiscated on the border between South Africa and Mozambique, the SA National Defence Force said on Wednesday.

Two men entering South Africa between the Tunnel and Zulu crossings on Tuesday afternoon were spotted by patrol guards and fled back over the border, Captain Zamo Sithole said.

They left behind their bags, which contained 77 cartons of contraband cigarettes, 27 bottles of whisky, 21 bottles of gin and second-hand clothing.

The goods were handed over to Lebombo border post and no arrests were made.
