Peters added that investigations also revealed that the robbers were armed at the time.

“Therefore, anyone who is able to identify and subsequently spot the suspects is urged not to confront the suspects as they could be armed and dangerous, but to rather contact the investigating officer, Lieutenant Colonel Mathothe on 079 694 6404.”

“Alternatively, persons with information may also call the SAPS Crime Stop number 08600 10111.”

The commission, which Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo chairs, started its work in 2018 and has been investigating allegations of corruption and state capture of government departments and state-owned enterprises.
