The suspects, when noticing a police helicopter landing on the river bank, fled into Zimbabwe, leaving the donkeys and the cart in the dryer portion of the Limpopo river,’ Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said.

This is the second achievement of an operation led by the Provincial Commissioner.

The origin of the recovered items, which include groceries is still being investigated and no arrests have been made yet.

‘The Festive Season Operations are still continuing and this monitoring by the top police Management in the province will be ongoing for the entire period,’ Mojapelo said.
