Over 2500 police firearms went missing between April last year and February this year, according to Safety and Security Minister Nathi Mthethwa, the SABC reported on Friday.

Responding to a DA question in Parliament on Thursday, he said some of the weapons were either reported lost or stolen, while others hadn't been classified.

Mthethwa said the missing firearms included pistols, revolvers, rifles and shotguns. More than 150 of them were recovered by February this year.

KwaZulu-Natal had the highest number of stolen police firearms. More than 90 were stolen in the province. More than 80 were stolen from police headquarters.

In addition, more than 100 retired police officers had not yet returned their service weapons over the last three years.
