Johannesburg - A 30-year-old alleged drug mule is expected to appear in the Komatipoort Magistrate's Court on Mpumalanga on Monday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Mtsholi Bhembe said the man was transporting cocaine worth R700 000 in a minibus taxi when he was arrested on Saturday night in Komatipoort.

He told police he was heading to Johannesburg from Mozambique. 

''Upon arrest, the man, who did not have a passport at his disposal, claimed not to have an idea of what he was carrying as he was given the "parcel" by another person in Mozambique. He said he was requested to give it to someone in Johannesburg,'' said Bhembe.
