Parliament approves a new firearm amnesty period
Written by Lethiwe Mdluli on 12 June, 2020
Parliament’s portfolio committee on Police has approved the notice by Police minister, Bheki Cele, to have a new firearm amnesty period ending early next year.
The minister asked for a second amnesty period due to the lockdown preventing many people from handing in their guns.
The previous period between December and the end of last month resulted in 19-thousand weapons being handed in.
The National Assembly will now have to approve the new period.
