THE OUTCRY by local residents of Polokwane to the Limpopo police about the gruesome murder of Thorisho Themane (28) who was allegedly attacked and killed by a gang has yielded positive results.
Residents of Polokwane marched to the police station on Friday to demand more arrests in the murder and an end to gangsterism.
They screamed with joy when Limpopo Police Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba announced to them that two more boys and a girl, who are also under age, were arrested in the early hours of Friday adding the number to nine suspects.
“With the information we are getting from the community, more arrests are expected linked to the alleged crime committed. And the three that was arrested will appear before the court within 48 hours.

We have done our job and thankful to the community for giving the police intelligence the valuable information” said Ledwaba.
Ledwaba further confirmed that the arrested nine suspects are behind bars and not kept at any place of safety.
Murdered Thabiso will be laid to rest on Saturday at his home in Flora-Park, Polokwane. 
Leader of the march Tony Rachuene said that the nine suspects arrested is not enough.
“In our memorandum we have mentioned that people who are selling sweets on the street corners of the suburbs and townships must also operate with a license because they are pretending to be selling sweets while they supplying drugs to their children.
“Our outcry had an impact since the death. We have been complaining to the police that the suspects are incomplete and we are glad with the recent arrest made. We have hope that within seven days our memorandum will positively replied” he said.
The protesters were also joined by a group of bikers from SAPA YOPA on their arrival at the Polokwane police station.
