Below are some of the responses left by concerned locals:
"There is a police station almost 200m away from the filling station."
"It's time for the SANDF to be visible in our communities every day. There must be SANDF members present in every major police station to ensure that they assist the SAPS because they are failing alone."
"It is probably the same guys that stole guns at the police station. They are gaining confidence, which is truly regrettable."
"Crime has travelled all the way to Limpopo and those guns are the ones stolen from the police station."
"Less than 1km from the Police Station... Imagine."
"All they needed was 2 mins to set up and detonate. Yho... Are those rumours about these gents being from the army true? Idk man, 2 minutes?!?"
