Polokwane - Six men appeared in the Musina Magistrate's Court on Monday on suspicion of human trafficking, Limpopo police said.

The six men, Fafidali Ali, 36, Aschaldi Alimo, 27, Malgesku Store, 29, Mandeni Sorach, 22, Eshgu Shesr, 26 and Keede Alimo, 34, were not asked to plead, said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

"The matter was postponed to May 14 for further police investigations."

The men faced 47 charges of kidnapping and would remain in custody.

Police organised a sting operation after a kidnapping case was reported.

The complainant told police that 47 Ethiopians were being held against their will and that he had been ordered to pay R10 000 for their release.

The six men were arrested on Saturday and police rescued the 47 people.

Mulaudzi said the 47 were in good health and had been taken to a place of safety.
