Two convicted rhino poachers were sentenced to six years imprisonment by the Makhado Magistrate's Court on Monday, Limpopo police said.
Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said Enock Mutungi, 38, and Mozambican national Daniel Dumusani, 48, were found guilty of rhino poaching in Masisi, in the Kruger National Park.
Meanwhile, three men appeared in the Giyani Magistrate's Court on Monday after they were arrested at the park.
They were detained when they were allegedly found in possession of firearms and ammunition on Sunday.
"During their appearance they were charged with illegal hunting, possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition, and trespassing," Mulaudzi said in a statement.
Gaspara Chabalala, 34, Antoni Chabalala, 33, and Ronald Baloyi, 28, were expected to appear again in the Giyani Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
