Two foreign nationals will appear in the Makhado Magistrate’s Court on Monday for rhino poaching and being in possession of illegal ammunition after their arrest on Friday.
Police spokesperson Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi said the men aged 33 and 48 were arrested at Pafuri following the killing of a rhino cow and it being dehorned. They were also in possession of an illegal .458 hunting rifle.
Investigations led police to the rhino carcass the following day in the Kruger National Park.
The provincial commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Simon Mpembe, applauded the good and speedy work rendered by SAPS members which led to the arrest of the suspects.
He reiterated that police would continue to deal with rhino poachers at all times.
