Continuous mob-attacks and killings an eyesore

PENGE –The SAPS Provincial Commissioner, L.t General Nneke Ledwaba has fingered and condemned the continuous acts of mob-attacks and killings prevalent in some police clusters in the province, especially in Tubatse policing area outside Burgersfort.

The condemnation follows a mob-related incident in which one suspected criminal was burnt to death inside a car when a group of community members attacked three suspected criminals before they could allegedly rob a local shop.

L.t Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, Limpopo Provincial Police Spokesperson, said the other suspects managed to escape, leaving their two cars which were burnt to ashes behind.

Ngoepe said it was alleged the deceased was driving one of the cars with two accomplices and the other two unknown suspects, driving a VVT Toyota were on their way to Ga-Mokgotho village to commit a business robbery.

“The local community got information before the crime could be committed and attacked them,” said Ngoepe.

Ngoepe said the deceased is a 29 year-old man from Ga-Mashamothane village near Burgersfort but forensic investigations were still underway to confirm his identity, and that his accomplices who fled were still unknown.

“A case of murder and two counts of malicious damage to property were opened. The suspects involved in the matter are unknown and there is no arrest as yet,” explained Ngoepe.

Police investigations are still continuing.

Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects involved in this mob-attack incident may contact Captain Richard Boshomane at 079 894 5501 or the crime stop number 08600 10111 or the sms crime line 32211 or the nearest police station.

General Ledwaba warned community members to refrain from the unbearable behavior because it continued to destroy the spirit of Community Policing.

The Provincial Commissioner said that cannot be tolerated by the law of the country and all those who are still perpetrating the phenomenon were going to be dealt with mercilessly and without compromise.
