A 27-year-old man was arrested for possession of an unlicensed firearm in Nyanga on Saturday 28 April 2018.

Police, together with members of the community, held an integrated operation where the firearm with no serial number was seized.

“Upon searching one of the men who acted suspiciously, we uncovered the firearm,” Spokesperson Captain Ntomboxolo Sitshitshi says.

With the firearm, Sitshitshi says that eight live rounds of ammunition were also confiscated.

Sitshitshi said that every firearm that is taken out of the streets of Nyanga means that more lives are saved.
