Foreigner (28) killed during armed robbery on the N1 North, outside Polokwane

POLOKWANE – According to police spokesperson Lt Col Moatshe Ngoepe, nine foreign nationals were traveling from Gauteng to Zimbabwe, in a Toyota Quantum along the N1 North.

About 20km out of Polokwane, a silver grey Toyota Avanza forced them off the road.
