BETHAL - The police in Mpumalanga have launched a manhunt for suspect(s) who broke into Forzando Colliery in Bethal and stole explosives. The incident occurred Friday June 29, at approximately 22:00.

It is unclear at this stage how the suspect(s) managed to access the storeroom where the explosives were stored. During an intensive investigation, it was discovered that 120 Maxam Magex cartridges were stolen.
