Rodney Landela.

SKUKUZA – Rodney Landela, a Kruger National Park (KNP) regional ranger, appeared in the Skukuza Regional Court on Tuesday.
The case against Landela and his co-accused, Kenneth Motshotsho from the KNP’s veterinary science department, was postponed to September for trial.


They will be in court on September 12, 14 and 15.
On July 27 last year, Landela and Motshotsho were arrested after a white rhino was poached in the Kingfisherspruit area.
Both its horns had been removed.

The two accused were connected to the poaching after bloodied shoes were apparently found in the vehicle Motshotsho was driving.
It was reported that a SANParks firearm had been used in the poaching.

They are in custody.
