Letlhakane Police Station Commander, Superintendent Michael Maphephu said they are investigating a robbery in which three men robbed owners and workers of Mahube shop at knifepoint and made off with cash.

He said the incident occurred on Saturday around 8pm when the shop was closed. According to the Letlhakane police chief, the robbers made off with money from the cash register and grabbed valuables from some of the employees' bags. “We cannot quantify the stolen cash as the owners of the shop were still waiting for the fingerprints to be collected from the tills,” he said.
