Hawks hot on the trail of Pumba rhino poachers

THE Hawks are confident they will soon arrest the poachers responsible for killing three rhinos at Pumba Game Reserve last month.

Hawks spokesman Paul Ramaloko said the unit was confident a breakthrough would be made soon. "There has been remarkable progress made. We are confident," he said. "We are following up on various leads."

Ramaloko said forensic results from a laboratory were still being awaited. These would aid the investigation
