“CRIME does not pay” was the message that was spread by Matatiele police officers to Lukholweni Primary School pupils at a crime awareness campaign held at the school last Friday.

SAPS spokesperson Captain Raphael Motloung said it is the police’s duty to warn pupils about the dangers of crime.

He said most pupils from Lukholweni and surrounding areas hitch-hike to school and this places their lives at risk.

“Police arrested five young people between 28 years and 30 years at KwaMzongwana for different criminal activities last week.

“Young people need to be warned about the dangers that come with committing crime,” said Motloung. He said the arrested young men will be appearing in the Matatiele Magistrate’s Court soon.
