Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal Tactical Response Team (TRT), the K9 Unit and Nsuze police officers swooped on a residence of a Montebello Hospital male nurse where two AK47 automatic assault rifles were found.
This follows the 37-year-old male nurse’s resistance to be searched at the main entrance of the hospital on Monday morning.
A hospital employee said the enrolled nurse at the hospital’s Multi-Drug Resistant (MDR) TB unit employee was carrying a huge bag when he refused to be searched at the gate.
“He was reported for that (refusal to be searched). It was suspicious because it’s a rule that bags are searched at the gate. It was at around 9am when this happened,” said the employee who is not authorised to the media.
It is believed the nurse had been working at the hospital for over three years.
