TWO women who crossed in South Africa on 31 January and found with explosives typically used in ATM bombings, were detained by Hillbrow police Robbery Unit.

The unit received a tip-off that led them to a flat in Florence House at the intersection of Kotze and King George streets. Constable Mduduzi Zondo said, "They found two women, aged 24 and 28, with two grey plastic bags and explosives wrapped in paper parcels."

There were 16 explosives and 15 detonation cables in the parcel. Their passports indicated that they entered South Africa on 31 January from Zimbabwe.

On interrogation, the suspects led police to more explosives in a rented back room at a house in Thembisa. An old woman and a child at the house said they knew nothing about the packages.

Police found 13 explosives and 13 cables in the Thembisa room, said to have been prepared for a buyer who did not arrive at the arranged time.




Zondo said the room in Thembisa was rented out by a relative of one of the suspects. The two wome will appear in Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.

Police will also investigate how the suspects managed to cross the border with explosives.
