The police in Mpumalanga have had a busy couple of days, as they have managed to arrest 7 suspects between Friday, 22 December 2023 and the early hours of today, Saturday 23 December 2023. These arrests were made as part of Operation Shanela, which was rolled out in the area of Calcutta, Bushbuckridge, Ehlanzeni District.

According to Police Spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala, the arrests were made as part of ongoing efforts to reduce crime levels in the area. “The men and women in Blue continue to put more focus and effort on areas that are badly affected by crime, including the area of Calcutta hence Operation Shanela is continually rolled out to reduce the levels of crime to zero,” said Mohlala.

The arrests included suspects who were found in possession of suspected stolen properties, as well as individuals who were arrested for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Additionally, two suspects were arrested for contravening the Immigration Act of South Africa, and one individual was arrested for escaping from lawful custody.
