Police have launched a manhunt for a suspected human trafficker who lured several Zimbabweans women to Oman where they were subjected to slavery.

In a statement, national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said Jacquiline Takure nee Chikukwa (45), facilitated the travel of the victims to Oman where they ended up being exploited. Reads the statement:

The Zimbabwe Republic Police is appealing for information that may lead to the arrest of Jacquiline Takure nee Chikukwa (45) who is being sought in connection with a case of human trafficking.

Sometime in 2022, the suspect posed as an employment agent and misrepresented to five victims that there were lucrative hotel and catering jobs in Dubai.

She facilitated the travel of the victims to Oman, where upon arrival, they had their passports confiscated by the suspect’s accomplices.

The victims were sold off as slaves to different people who subjected them to domestic servitude, labour and sexual exploitation.

One of the victims managed to escape and alerted her relatives who reported the matter to the police. The victims were repatriated to Zimbabwe by the Government of Zimbabwe.

Anyone with information to call the National Complaints Desk number (0242) 703631 or WhatsApp on 0712 800 197 or report at any nearest police station.
