According to the Security Institute, 1.5 million ammunition stolen during the looting in Durban last week may already be in the hands of criminals.
Ammunition was looted from a depot shipping container in Prospecton, southern Durban.
Before it’s too late, police must do everything in their power to retrieve the stolen ammunition, says Johann Berger, a principal researcher at the Security Institute.
“Of course, so much ammunition is worried about what happened when we faced so much violence. The disappeared ammunition was in the midst of criminal and violent acts. There is also real concern that it could also be used. However, what was not recovered is probably in the hands of criminals, which could be used for more violence. “
On Wednesday, a police operation took place in Springfield aimed at recovering some of the allegedly stolen items from last week’s mayhem.
As outlined in the video below, the eThekwin Metro Police led the operation with the support of members of the South African National Defense Force (SANDF).
