According to Limpopo Police, they intercepted a stolen car which was headed for Zimbabwe yesterday the 23rd of Dec 2016.

If not for the fact that the Limpopo Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba, who was flying in a police helicopter when the vehicle was seen attempting to cross  the Limpopo River, they wouldn’t have seen it, spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said.

“After visiting the roadblock and a walkabout at the adjacent mall, the General took a helicopter to patrol the area, when he noticed the suspected stolen vehicle, a grey Toyota, inside the Limpopo river,” Mojapelo said.

“The vehicle was semi-submerged in the water and the suspects were about to make use of five donkeys to pull it out towards the Zimbabwe side. Upon noticing the police, the suspects fled into Zimbabwe.”
