He said , “ I am happy that some of them decided to yield to the call of Amnesty time . They voluntarily returned those items that they stole . I gave them 72 - hour and this is about 48 -hour they still have 24 hours grace more .

“ I so much welcome it but I understand that this is about 20 per cent of items . The intention of this is to assist the owners of these properties of having the opportunity to get them back .

“ Other people still have the opportunity of 24 hours to voluntarily return things they stole . After the expiration of the remaining 24 hours , the government will move in. One thing they should realise is that there are a lot of video recordings of all the people that participated in the looting .”
