FREE STATE: Tuesday, 05 July 2022 :  A diesel truck overturned on Tuesday 5 July 2022 at about 06h45 in Maokeng. It is alleged that a 28-year-old man who was traveling from Durban headed to Scheizer-Reneke in North West, passing through Kroonstad lost control of the Diesel Tanker Truck. The truck over turned and the police managed to attend to the scene immediately. The 28-year-old driver sustained minor injuries and has been taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Maokeng community members flocked in numbers illegally helping themselves with diesel. The police tried to disperse them to keep them away from the hazardous scene. However the community members retaliated by throwing stones at the police. Welkom Public Order Police members were called to assist with the scene. Fezile Dabi District Acting Commissioner Brig Mapulane Mbeloane strongly condemns this action by the community members. “It is so heart-breaking to see how our community members are at ease with putting their lives in danger more especially seeing that children are also involved", said Brigadier Mbeloane.
