The officers managed to foil a robbery, arrested a suspect and recovered firearms in a sting operation that Cele calls a success. In addition, 9 suspects were gunned down during a shootout with cops in Isipingo, south of Durban.

According to SABC News' report, Cele said:

"I’m told that those were known criminals, well prepared to go … look at the kind of the weapons they had; the AK47’s that were there. So, I think (the) police here were well prepared for the operation. I’m waiting for a full report, especially from the provincial commissioner."
