Look At How Illegal Foreigners Are Smuggling Drugs Into The Country

A multimillion rand drug bust in KwaZulu-Natal this week was the result of suspicions about a container suspected of smuggling drugs into South Africa. An intelligence-driven operation at a container depot in Isipingo on Tuesday led the Hawks and Durban Harbour security to a container allegedly containing animal food, according to police. Following a search, 26 canvas bags with Tik Tok and Jaguar branding were discovered filled with cocaine bricks.

Although it is unclear where the drugs originated, investigations are ongoing to apprehend the perpetrators and “prevent contraband drugs from entering our country.” Lt-Gen Godfrey Lebeya, the head of the Hawks, said the country was "closing in on the drug cartels" and that the bust demonstrated the scope of organized, cross-border crime.

To help them close the market for good, Lebeya urged communities not to take drugs, or to "demand the supply," as he put it. What are your views on this issue? Which nationality do you think might be responsible for this? Be sure to leave your answers in the comments.
