"They were refilling the hole when they discovered the buckets."

Kareli said police were alerted and discovered four 20-litre plastic buckets filled with shotgun ammunition.

He said police were looking for the owner of the house as part of their investigations.

      I suspect this will be attached to the parties accused of wanting to blow up the ANC-party in Bloem. Not that it is attached, they just want some more proof, so they manufacture proof.

    eish I wondered where I had left them :) Expensive loss for someone. I wish News24 would write the story when they have results?? So irritating.

    No big deal and not newsworthy. People more aware of clay shooting will realize that a few clay shooters (shooting at a clay pigeons shooting club) will finish those 4 buckets of shotgun ammunition in an afternoon.
