National Police Commissioner General Bheki Cele says he is concerned about hoax bomb scares as well as the illegal use of explosives.
He has warned any person who maliciously creates a bomb scare will be prosecuted.
Police spokesperson Colonel Tummi Shai says police management is extremely concerned about the illegal use of explosives in the public domain.
She says this also gives rise to a number of hoax bomb scares which not only traumatised people, but also led to a waste of time and resources by police.
Cele says where illegal explosives are used to blow up automatic teller machines, police members’ lives are often endangered and this will not be tolerated.
