Provincial Commissioner for the police in Mpumalanga; Lieutenant-General Semakaleng Daphney Manamela; applauded the work of the determined officer; who intercepted the stolen vehicle and arrested the culprits.

Manamela said she hoped the public can see the good work being done by the SAPS members; and that they will also play their role in assisting the police with valuable information about crime .

The country now and again suffers from corruption within the SAPS and the SANDF; caused by members who collude with criminals and accept bribes at the boarder.

One cannot take away the glory from these hardworking officers; they did a stellar job.
