Botswana police have confirmed that Sipho Mathangana and Jabu Shabangu, both aged 26, who were arrested after a botched cash-in-transit heist, are from Thembisa.
They appeared in a Botswana court and were remanded on Thursday.
They were arrested last Friday when police intercepted five gunmen as they allegedly attempted to rob a cash-in-transit vehicle near Riverwalk Mall in Gaborone.
The two were arrested with three Batswana men. Initially, police said three of the five were South African.
