Zimbabwean illegal immigrants in hot water after assaulting a truck driver who wanted to deport them

On Sunday, three individuals, including a bus driver, were arrested for allegedly assaulting a truck driver who attempted to assist police in chasing down an overloaded bus filled with unruly passengers.

The driver and two Zimbabwean nationals were also charged with reckless and negligent driving, illegal immigration, damage to property, and obstruction of justice.

The incident occurred on the Ben Schoeman Highway in Tshwane, South Africa, where officers from the Tshwane metro police department (TMPD) accident unit were conducting road policing.

They spotted the bus, which was coming from the Fountains area and heading towards Centurion.

Upon closer inspection, they noticed that the bus was carrying an excessive number of passengers, with some even squeezed behind the front windscreen next to the driver.

When the bus was pulled over, the driver presented a Zimbabwean driving license, passport, and cross-border permit.

However, upon further investigation, it was discovered that these documents were fake, violating the National Land Transport Act.

The situation quickly escalated when the truck driver, who witnessed the commotion, tried to intervene and assist the police.

Unfortunately, he was met with aggression from the bus driver and two other individuals, resulting in an alleged assault.

This incident highlights the dangers of overloaded buses and the importance of proper documentation for drivers and passengers alike.
