The SAPS National Commissioner, General Khehla John Sitole invites members of the media to the destruction of over 30 000 firearms on Wednesday, 17 April 2019.

The SAPS will continue and remains committed to fighting the proliferation of illegal firearms and ammunition as they pose a threat to the safety and security of the inhabitants of this country.

In order to prevent the commission of serious and violent crimes and well as to stamp the authority of the State, police have to continue to actively detect and remove these illegal firearms from circulation.

The details of the destruction are as follows:
