103) Limpopo Towtrucks Burning

24th June 2012

LIMPOPO TOWTRUCKS BURNING!! 

  

 

8 towtrucks, value around  R3million, belonging to 4 towing companies in towns across Limpopo province torched! The last reported incident, the burning of PPrus Panelbeater's rollback on Saturday night, 16 June!!

THREATS and INTIMIDATION 

are a daily nightmare for Limpopo towing company owners and their staff. They  are called or visited and told their businesses, trucks and homes will be burnt and in some cases they’ll be killed if they don’t submit to the callers'/visitors' demands.

SAPS LIMPOPO

ARE FAILING IN THEIR DUTY TO SERVE AND PROTECT!


Despite cases of arson, assault, intimidation etc. opened with Limpopo SAPS these last 2 years it’s getting worse. The SAPS fail to act on information, dockets and evidence go missing and victims and witnesses fear to come forward.

 

TOWING BUSINESSES BORDERING LIMPOPO ARE NOW ALSO
BEING TARGETED BY THESE GANGSTERS.

 

We’ve received several calls from Mpumalanga and N.E. Gauteng towers who’ve been threatened by this same gang also trying to muscle them out of towing.

ONLY WHEN GOOD MEN STAND BY AND DO NOTHING
DOES EVIL THRIVE

THIS CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CARRY ON!

WE MUST STAND TOGETHER, WE  MUST TURN OVER EVERY STONE,  WE MUST ORGANISE AND WORK EVERY CHANNEL TO EXPOSE AND END THIS TSOTSIE BEHAVIOUR AND BRING THE GANGSTERS TO JUSTICE - BEFORE PEOPLE START DYING! 
 
Are or you being or have you been threatened and intimidated?

Towing and recovery, emergency and all tows and road rescue and assist services are taken very seriously by satra and her members. Towing is a business and therefore business matters have to be stringently attended to in order to maintain a viable and dynamic tow business no matter what the size and satra's committed chairman Andre van der Merwe has many ways of assisting satra members | this news blog being one of them.
