Johannesburg - Limpopo police have destroyed 54 084 items of illegal fireworks seized over the Christmas period, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said on Tuesday.

"In preparation for the New Year festivities, we are concentrating on the illegal selling of fireworks," he said.

"So far 54 082 different kinds of fireworks have been destroyed."

Mulaudzi said the fireworks with an estimated street value of R100 000 were confiscated last week from businesses in Polokwane, Musina, Tzaneen, Makhado, Mokopane and Mahwelereng.

    This is great! Please could the Midrand SAPS catch a wakeup and follow their example. The last Diwali, despite brazen selling off and letting off of fireworks the SAPS could only respond by saying that it was a special occasion. Pathetic! Thanks also to the irresponsible yobs letting off fireworks - I hope your kids blow their arms off and your houses accidentally burn down when it all goes wrong.

    Wel gedaan SAP! ( Net jammer hulle het nie al daai crackers en skyrockets eers in die skelm goewerment officials se agterente opgedruk voor hulle dit aan die brand gesteek het nie.) Selfs Phalaborwa was baie stil gewees tot nou toe. Hoop dit gaan hou.
