The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has warned of harsh consequences on anyone who takes the law into their own hands following an incident in which three people suspected of stealing goats were stoned and their vehicle torched on Thursday 29 September 2022 in Mafefe village under Malipisdrift policing area.

The Police were called after some community members were seen chasing a motor vehicle all the way from Mecklenburg.

Preliminary investigations indicated that while the suspects were trying to escape they knocked down a pedestrian and he died on the scene.

The Provincial Commissioner has called on residents to desist from this type of behaviour but to work with the police to ensure criminals are uprooted and face the full might of the law.

Anyone with information that assist in arresting the suspect should contact Detective Sergeant Jim Mophoso on 0824457724 or the crime stop number 0860010111.
