The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe, has commended the Anti-Smuggling team for their commitment and diligence throughout an anti-smuggling operation.

Information was received about alleged vehicle smugglers driving a possible stolen motor vehicle, a Toyota Fortuner 2.8 valued at R900 000, en route to smuggle a vehicle from Gauteng to Malawi through the Beitbridge border post.
