Bheki Cele said : “In April, there was little movement (of people), and this included those who would have surrendered their firearms as part of the amnesty period. Almost half of March and April was dead because everyone was on level 5 lockdown. We thought it would be profound (sic) to request another period of amnesty,” “We believe the previous amnesty period was completely eaten away by the Covid-19 lockdown. One gun removed from a community, especially an illegal firearm leads to lives being saved. We urge that this period is granted to us. Communities have also raised the issue of being stuck in lockdown” External link
