Long Abstract: POLICE in Lusaka are keeping 14 Congolese girls between five and 17 years and one woman aged 29 who allegedly tried to smuggle them to South Africa without legal documents. The woman who travelled with the children from the Democratic Republic of Congo using a local bus is alleged to have been pairing the girls so as not to raise suspicion among other passengers. Police spokesperson Brenda Muntemba and Victim Support Unit (VSU) officer Peter Kasale both confirmed the arrest. Mr Kasale said the group was intercepted at the Chirundu border post in Southern Province as the woman was trying to make arrangements to smuggle the children in small numbers in order not to raise suspicions at the exit point.
