Taking to Twitter, The South African Police Service shared snaps of the day, adding the 911 Riders were welcomed by the PC, Lt Gen Risimati Shivuri .

According to the group's Facebook page, their mission was to raise awareness for farm killings in the country.

However, according to the SAPS' post, the 911 Riders is not only raising awareness for farm murders, but crimes committed against people living in rural areas as well.

It was not the first time the group honoured the police. In 2017, farmers and 911 Riders handed over a memo and letter of thanks to Bethal Police.

According to reports, the bikers saluted the police for the work they do daily, which they added was extremely difficult.
