gunIOL reports that provincial commissioner of police in Limpopo, Lieutenant-General Thembi Hadebe, has established a high-level team of investigators to probe an armed robbery which took place at Sambandou Clinic in the Vhembe District in the early hours of Monday.

Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo reported: “Three suspects allegedly entered the clinic using the back fence at about 1.30am and approached the guard room. They suddenly pointed the security guards on duty with firearms and demanded their work pistols. They did not find any and instead robbed them of their cellphones and proceeded to the clinic building where they robbed the nurses’ cellphones, money and car keys of a silver grey (Toyota) Fortuner of one nurse at a gunpoint.” Mojapelo said the robbers used the nurse’s car to flee the scene. The vehicle was later found abandoned at Vyeboom in Vuwani policing area. Hadebe appealed to community members to assist by providing information about the assailants.
