ATM bombers make off with cash

2012-04-27 16:00

Johannesburg - An Absa automated teller machine was bombed outside the Makhado area on Friday, Limpopo police said.

The three bombers took an undisclosed amount of cash, said Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.

The gang fired random shots in the air before fleeing in a getaway car.

No arrests have been made yet.

It was unclear if the ATM was in a complex or not.

    It is only since the ANC came to power did you get this type of crime. Never befire was it heard of. Why?? Perhaps some high ranking police are involved or the police are since 1994 totally incompetant . Perhaps it is both.

    The more people get free money like this without being arrested, the more such crimes will happen.

    It's Julius malema and his cronies, he's trying to keep up with his bills since we know he's unemployed and the tenders have dried up since Zuma gave him a boot at the ANC.
