Shande Solam Mbege and his wife Monica from Tanzania
were boarding a flight last night when security personnel
found live bullets during the luggage scan, airport sources
The bullets were found in the luggage of Monica. The duo
arrived here on February four for treatment as Shande was
suffering from paralysis. After treatment at a hospital here
they were on their return journey, they said.

bullets without proper permission in our country is
an illegal act, sources added.
