Operation Buya Mthetho is in full swing and gradually realising its objective of eradicating and combating crime in Gauteng. This was seen when police, in full force, tackled the George Gogh Hostel and recovered unlicensed firearms and dangerous weapons.

Gauteng SAPS and Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department members, led by Acting Gauteng Deputy Provincial Commissioner Policing, Major General Sithole, raided the hostel with the intention of recovering unlawful firearms and illegal substances.

This mission was accomplished when three unlicensed firearms and other dangerous weapons were recovered. Furthermore, police arrested six suspects after they were found with drugs, dagga and selling liquor without a permit.

The arrested suspects will appear at Magistrate’s Court soon.
