Pictures: Northern Cape off duty police officers dump weekend plans to gaurd Makhadzi for free
Makhadzi is indeed the artist of the moment, and living her dream, through her hard work and persistence to improve her music, she recently bumped into a whole new world of fame and glory. Born and bred in the humble and dusty Venda villages, The Limpopo Queen is well received wherever she goes and cheered whenever she graces her hunting ground –the stage.
Recently she encountered a different kind of experience over the weekend when she visited Northern Cape to perform. Fifteen off duty police officers dumped their weekend plans to voluntarily provide security to Makhadzi, the national treasure.
Posting on Facebook, the Murahu hitmaker revealed that only five police officers were assigned to provide security for her. Still, after hearing that Makhadzi was coming, fifteen off duty officers volunteered to guard for free. The SAPS police details ensured Makhadzi’s car and hotel room were heavily guarded; some even went further to provide free escort services.

The past weekend I was protected by 20 police officers; they protected my car and hotel, I had a chance to ask one police officers, and her answer was like, we were told that you are coming. More than five police were supposed to be off duty, but they volunteered to come to see and protect you because it’s you. Northern Cape loves you, MAKHADZI.
Shout out to all Northern Cape police who came and protected me; indeed, I am living my dream.
