Police in the Western Cape
allegedly confiscated two guns during a shoot-out between suspects in Delft.
Police say the Z88 9mm pistols
discovered are normally used by the South African Police Service.
Following this discovery,
Delft police have been flooded with information from the community that at
least 30 SAPS guns are in circulation among gang members in the gang-ravaged
areas of Delft and Westbank.
Meanwhile, residents allegedly
said it was common knowledge that SAPS members hired out guns that were handed
back after a hit was carried out.
However, MEC for Community
Safety Dan Plato, in a statement strongly condemned the claims saying it was
not the first time that this had surfaced and that the claims warranted an
immediate independent investigation.
Western Cape Mayoral committee
member of safety says…“In response to a
land invention that was stopped by law enforcement earlier today.”
“They seem to be an additional
issues and the conflict between the ANC ward counsellor Nono.
“ANC ward counsellor Nono and the aspirant ANC ward counsellor carter in
the Area and in the process counsellor Nono’s house has Target and very badly
destroyed the rest.” He added
“In process luckily he was not
at home and nobody were in the there.” So nobody was injured, last night pupils
of the community also burn down the community hall”
