Western Cape: In pursuit of realizing SAPS’s mission to ensure that offenders are brought to book, Nyanga SAPS members apprehended a 34-year-old man with an unlicensed firearm following a hijacking of a delivery vehicle incident in Lusaka during the early hours of this morning, 23 June 2017. Another suspect managed to flee and is still at large; however, the police are cooperating with all stakeholders in the community to bring him to justice.
