“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.

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

“Last week, a motor vehicle that was reported stolen in Durban was abandoned by the suspects in the middle of the Limpopo River together with five donkeys that were used to pull it through the water.

“The suspects fled after they were spotted from a police helicopter. The origin of these items, which include groceries, is still being investigated and there is no arrest,” SAPS narrated.
