Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa on Wednesday told Parliament that a total of 1 202 firearms have been lost or stolen in the last 18 months.

Mthethwa said in a written parliamentary response, only 170 firearms have been recovered.

The Democratic Alliance has called on the Minister to ensure that lost firearms are recovered and that, those who have lost their firearms are disciplined.

DA Shadow Minister of Police Dianne Kohler Barnard said it is likely that those firearms will end up in the hands of criminals.

She added that the reality is that the South African Police Service is fuelling the illegal firearms trade in this country.
