Six-years-ago, Mokhepho Gafane saw how serious the crime was in her hometown of GaMothapo, near Polokwane, so she enrolled in the SAPS.
Today, the Limpopo based police officer is making her mark on the crime-fighting scene, locking away several serious offenders and cracking one after the other case.
Gafane's exceptional work in the police force secured her a spot in the list of candidates which Limpopo provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba chose to celebrate as part of women's month.
