The men, aged between 26 and 38, were arrested on Wednesday after police were tipped-off, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

“The police receive a tip-off that five occupants of a white VW Polo were on their way to poach a rhino at a private game farm in Letsitele.”

When the car was stopped at a road block police recovered a .375 Sako hunting rifle, a silencer, a butcher's knife, an axe, and eight rounds of ammunition. The men would appear in the Phalaborwa Magistrate's Court on Friday. - Sapa
