STATEMENT BY RAY NKONYENI MUNICIPAL MANAGER MAX MBILI:
The SAPS National Task team was humbled by the Durban High Court on Thursday for the unlawful seizure of RNM fire-arms in August. The Muncipality approached the High Court and the police were directed to return the the fire-arms with immediate effect. These will be handed over to Head of Department Sibusiso Nzimande and his team on Monday 23 September.
The Muncipality has been exonerated by the court of law and this proves that no one is above the law. The municipality will allways cooperate with law enforcement agencies if they want to do an investigation, but will not allow the law to be abused.
