Community stones four taxis and burn one to ashes

03 January 2018 | Road Safety Highlights

The Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has condemned acts of mob-attacks and vigilantism which erupted in Ga-Mphahlele area outside Lebowakgomo.

This condemnation follows the incident which occurred yesterday afternoon, 02 January 2018, at Maijane village in the Ga-Mphahlele area of the Lebowakgomo Policing area outside Polokwane.

It is alleged that the local community members stoned four (04) taxis and burnt one to ashes after a group of taxi people forced one resident to use the taxi instead of hiking near Seleteng taxi rank.

The Police were notified, reacted swiftly and the situation was then brought back to normal and cases of malicious damage to property and assault were then opened.

There is no arrest yet but the Police investigations including the identification of those involved are still continuing.

Members of the Community must at all times resort to the legal processes in case of any situation or conflict rather than engaging in violence acts which is totally uncalled for and all perpetrators involved in this incident, are going to be dealt with mercilessly and without compromise, concluded General Ledwaba.

Anyone who can assist with information which can assist the Police to arrest all those who participated in this crimes, may contact Captain Richard Boshane at 079 894 5501 or the crime stop number 0860010111 or the crime line sms 32211 or the nearest Police Station.
