Chrome lands trio in trouble

THREE Zimbabweans and a South African national have been arrested in the neighbouring country for illegal chrome mining.

Police confiscated three truckloads of raw chrome found in their possession suspected to have been smuggled from Zimbabwe.

Lloyd Sithole (32), Moses Nemanganda (37), Wilton Haruzi (34) and Joseph Hlongwane (23) from South Africa have since appeared before a Sekhukhune magistrate court charged with illegal mining.

They were all remanded in custody to next week when their bail hearing is expected to start.

According to Limpopo Province police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, the four were spotted on the R37 Road of the Apel policing area in those trucks.
