On Thursday, Police Minister Minister Bheki Cele revealed that he will go soon to Malawi to retrieve South African vehicles stolen and smuggled across the border.
Cele has made this known to reporters at a briefing at Tembisa police station in Ekurhuleni.
He said: “They do not even change the number plates there…I wont tell you who drives them, but I can tell you that a lot of the stolen Gauteng cars are being driven freely in the streets of Maputo with no problem. I will be meeting with authorities there soon to attend to this issue.
“Fifty nine firearms were confiscated, 47 explosive devices and 152 rounds of ammunition as well as millions of rands have been seized. The biggest cash haul was at Mthatha [Eastern Cape], where police recovered stacks of cash running into million, packed and hidden.”
