MALUTI SAPS say they are on high alert and more than ready to fight crime over the Easter holidays.
Some Maluti Mounted Unit members have already been deployed to the area.
SAPS spokesperson Captain Raphael Motloung said the unit will be patrolling in town and rural areas.

Last Sunday, Matatiele Crime Prevention Unit members arrested two men aged 20 and 24, who were in possession of dagga.
“It is believed the suspects were intending to go to Cape Town to sell the dagga,” said Motloung.

Both suspects appeared in the Matatiele Magistrate’s Court on Monday and the case was postponed to May 23 for further investigation.

On April 5, police found 66 Mandax tablets and arrested two suspects aged 24 and 29 in an operation in Khalizembe village in Mount Fletcher.
The suspects appeared in the Mount Fletcher Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
The 24-year-old was released on R900 bail while the other suspect was released on warning. The case was postponed to May 3.
Motloung said police will not rest over the Easter holidays. - Supplied.
