Bail granted to High-ranking police officials


The Kempton Park Magistrates’ Court granted bail to two senior SAPS officials.

The two came before the court for violating the firearms control act.

To date, 28 people have been apprehended after a thorough investigation, which includes 17 police officers.

The late Chief Constable of the Western Cape – Charl Kinnear was among the officers investigating an allegation of firearm fraud.

The officers were given a bail of R3,000 each.

The NPA said it was looking for other possible arrests.

“We did not oppose bail,” said NPA spokesperson Phindile Sigasa.

“We don’t believe that they can interfere with any investigations or interfere with any state witnesses.”

The case was adjourned to February 2021.
