Crime victim says police failed to give feedback for months

The owner of Polokwane Towing, has still not heard anything from the police regarding the incident.

The owner of Polokwane Towing, whose bakkie was destroyed when it was set alight in May, has still not heard anything from the police regarding the incident.

A case of arson was opened with the Seshego police but according to the vehicle owner, AndrĂ© Minnaar, nothing has been done since the incident occurred. “I have never seen or heard from an investigating officer nor have I received any feedback regarding progress on arrests,” Minnaar said.

The bakkie was parked at a house in Seshego where the regular driver of the vehicle, Rosset Makatu, an employee of Polokwane Towing, lives. The bakkie was allegedly doused with petrol before it was set alight. Makatu said there was a visible petrol trail from the bakkie to the nearest corner of the house.

WO Mothemane Malefo, Seshego police spokesperson, said an investigating officer was assigned to the case and the investigating officer and complainant communicated often.

“The complainant in this case is Mr R.R Ramaru. The vehicle was parked at his premises the day of the fire and therefore he is the complainant in the matter. No one has been arrested yet, but police investigations are continuing,” Malefo said.
