ARMED SUSPECTS ROB STOCKVEL MEMBERS R60 000.00 AS ADVICES TO RESORT TO BANK TRANSACTIONS CONTINUE TO BE IGNORED

POLOKWANE Members of the local Stockvel under Mankweng Policing area were on Saturday 10 December 2022 accosted by two armed suspects and robbed of R60 000.00 cash. This after they had gathered to share the money.

It is reported that the stockvel members gathered at the premises of one of the members at Tshware village, Ga- Mamabolo. At about 10h30, before they could share their monthly contributions, two suspects appeared and ordered everyone to lie down. They then took all the money and before they fled the scene, they locked all of them into one of the rooms.

The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has again cautioned community members and business owners to refrain to carry large amount of money or to share stockvel money in hard cash.

“We often receive reports like this, where stockvel members withdraw large amounts of money and proceed to the house of one of the members to share it, especially during this time of the year. This method obviously attracts criminals. Stockvel members are advised to make use of electronic funds transfer (EFT) which minimizes crimes of this nature,” concluded Lieutenant General Hadebe.

The Police request anyone with information about the suspects to contact investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Samuel Malemela on 0767498403 or the nearest Police Station 0860010111 or MySAPSApp

Police investigations are continuing.
