Nature buffs unearth dark secrets of dodgy property deals
The Bendor Extension 100 Integrated Housing Development Project on the outskirts of Polokwane has been hailed by Limpopo’s provincial government as a “ground-breaking” housing initiative.

It was on a visit to the local vlei that members of the Polokwane Frog Watch group discovered something a lot bigger than the rare frog they were looking for. And so frightening was their discovery that, ever since, Polokwane Frog Watch has functioned rather like a secret society.
