The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has send a stern warning to all the people who are still perpetrating any form of criminality including the violent crimes against children in some parts of this Province.

This strong worded message, follows the recent incident where a three(03) year old boy was found murdered yesterday on 2018-12-07 during the day and his body dumped in the bushes next to Koting Village in the Marble Hall Policing area outside Groblesdal.

The Police in this Province are determined to robustly deal with all criminalities affecting our children. Those who choose to close their ears to our continuous warning messages, will be hunted down until we take them to where they belong, concluded General Ledwaba.

The suspects in this matter are still unknown and there is no arrest yet.
