According to information made available to the Zambian Mission in Pretoria, the four trucks were recovered by South African Police in conjunction with a private vehicle tracking firm that the companies had engaged to provide tracking system for their fleet.

“Locations of the abandoned  trucks were discovered by following signals that were  transmitted by trackers that were installed on the trucks .The trucks have since been parked at the South African Police  FNB impounding yard in  Soweto awaiting further investigations.

Authorities indicated that  no arrests have been made so far in connection with the matter but all the vehicle engines they were carrying  destined for reconditioning at some garages were  missing,” first secretary press at the Zambian mission in Pretoria, Naomi Nyawali has stated.

“The Mission was further informed that the trucks were  found in good condition.

    These idiots must be stopped otherwise they will think they own the continent of africa.after all they don’t know what freedom is,all the industries wer built by boers(whites).there economy is 99% controlled by the whites even if all the black foreigners leave,they will still be followers.grow up 1994 is not long ago for you to start behaving like street kids.i heard one fellow telling Zambian footballers that they should leave there country and go back to Zambia and continue suffering.my question is ,if we are suffering why are your people who are not suffering coming to Zambia? shallow idiotic thinking.mind you no man is an island

    • how pathetic

      You’re abusing your stupidity fool, no wonder why south africans always think less of you.

    • Leonard Orji Offor

      You are right but I think South Africans miscreants are too primitive and uncivilised to know that other African countries are far wiser and well informed than they do. It’s just a very few of them that knows what is obtainable in other African countries. Moreover they are the most uneducated folks in Africa to understand and hence are behaving like animals.

    See only landlocked south Africans can have negative thinking because they don’t travel to other countries all the malls constructed in various countries are south Africans shops and getting dollars from these shops to these shallow minded unemployed lazybone south Africans . Alot of south Africans are employed in mine companies we don’t chase and harrass them because they have families . We’re all Africans

  5. Kwacheranji

    I have different views over the hijackings of the four trucks at once. The same were carrying engines i think broken down engines. That’s a scandal. Investigations must be extended to the drivers I am smelling a foul play here

  6. collen mujaju

    Yu pple behave like human beings not animals,not all south african are bad,in all countries we must learn to forgive each other thank yu

  7. Owen

    There is no drivers who can steal a broken down engine. Drivers we carry millions everyday unlikely broken engines, for what?

  8. HH azinama!

    zambia should seriously promote alternative routes for export and encourage truckers to use them–Namibia, Angola, DRC, Mozambique & Tanzania
