0/* Mike, I came the Polokwane, Tzaneen route on Thursday and there weren't any problems.

Think the problems are down South for Phabeni gate.

There were problems here last week. Cars getting thrown with stones and trucks set alight.

It is calm now but we don't know what will happen in the next few days. It changes by the hour, all about timing.

Hi Mike,

The problems have been off and on.
The one moment there is nothing happening and 20 minutes later they are throwing stones at cars etc.
It is the luck of the draw at the moment..

If you have Facebook on your phone like a page called: Phalaborwa CPF.
There you will get the latest news.
Mind you.
A lot of it is written in Afrikaans though

Yeap, that was me, and I still remember the meeting very fondly as one of the best nights I have spent in both KNP and SA

Hopefully, circumstance will favor us in the future with another chance to meet you all
