While Bolhuis also told the publication that Kruger was found in the river, police told Netwerk24 the body found by divers was yet to be identified.

The bakkie was found near a low-lying bridge at the Henbase Lodge where Kruger was staying at the time of his disappearance.

“At this stage, we are asking that the privacy of the family be respected. From my team’s side, we send our condolences to Willem’s family.”
