A 37-YEAR-OLD man from Jika-Joe is one of the actors that will appear in the Durban-based new film called Human Trafficking,part three that will be released towards the end of the year.

Lindokuhle Luthuli told Echo that he never thought he would one day gain an role in a movie.

He said this is his first time acting, but he wants to continue and show people his talent.

This film was mainly shot in Umlazi, Durban, but some scenes were shot at Jika-Joe, where Luthuli took part.

The aim of the movie is to raise awareness against women and children abuse, human trafficking and other social ills.

Said Luthuli: “I have witnessed a lot of bad things happen and it always breaks my heart. When I saw part one and two of the same movie film, I was inspired to get involved.

“I contacted the directors of the film and asked them to come and shoot one of the scenes at Jika Joe as a way of raising awareness of these issues in the area. At first, they didn’t take me seriously. It took me three years to convince the directors of this film but they finally agreed and they shot the scenes two weeks ago.” Luthuli said he hopes that people will watch this movie and become more cautious when accepting help and jobs from strangers over the Internet.

“The fact that the film is shot at Jika Joe means that it will speak to the residents and they will want to watch it. These problems have to stop.

“Some Jika Joe residents don’t have jobs and every time they hear about a job opportunity they jump at it, not knowing whether it is a legit job or not. They end up doing wrong things like selling drugs in other countries, provinces and other places because they have nothing to do,” he said.
