Parliament approves a new firearm amnesty period

Written by 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.
