SANParksThe Lowvelder reports that four Kruger National Park (KNP) rangers are back at work after they were arrested on poaching-related charges earlier this year.  

The four accused were arrested in two separate incidents and appeared in the Skukuza Court in January and February respectively.  In January 2019, the media reported that Nzima Joe Shihlangu, 32, and Lucky Mkansi, 30, were arrested on 15 January after authorities believed they were allegedly involved in rhino poaching incidents at the KNP.  The duo was arrested at the Crocodile Bridge Section closest to the Mozambican border.  They were each granted R10,000 bail and were instructed not to have any contact with other KNP rangers while SANParks’ internal investigations were under way.  In a separate incident, Hendrik Silinda and Musa Mlambo were arrested in February in the park on poaching-related incidents.
