Johannesburg - Five people accused of running a brothel, where children as young as 12 were kept, and being part of a human trafficking ring, are expected to return to the Durban Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Sandile Patrick Zweni, Nonduzo Dlamini, Bhabha Dubazini, Dr Genchen Ragnath and his wife Ravina face charges of dealing in cocaine, human trafficking, keeping a brothel, and living off the earnings of prostitution.

Zweni, Dlamini and Dubazini were arrested with a fourth person when 24 girls, eight of them minors, were rescued from a building in Durban's Point area in February.

Zweni's bail application was denied in April while the other three abandoned their bail applications.
The fourth person was released and the charges against them withdrawn.

The Ragnath's were arrested sometime after the initial bust and granted bail of R30 000 each.
