The Department of Home Affairs reported the nationals were escorted to the Brixton Police Station after traffic officers stopped a 16-seater taxi they were travelling in during a Gauteng Traffic Department operation, in Braamfontein.
The driver of the vehicle is in custody as charges are being finalized.
Of the 24 persons, three are said to be 15 years old.
It is believed the Ethiopians were victims of human trafficking who came to South Africa via Zimbabwe.
“They may be moved to a place of safety as investigations unfold.
Officials from the Department of Home Affairs are investigating with other law enforcement agencies and social partners,” Mayihlome Tshwete, Department of Home Affairs spokesperson said.
