Our kids are not safe, this is what these peddlers are selling

Communities are being terrorised daily by the drug dealers who are operating in our societies. What is more worrying is that in South Africa there now seems to be some drug manufacturers too.

On arrival with back up from SAPS Booysens, a search was conducted. It resulted with the officers arresting one suspect and drugs worth R15 000 were seized. Furthermore, chemicals which were being used to make the drugs and drug manufacturing equipment were confiscated.


No mention was made on the suspects age or nationality. Members of the public were left applauding the team which carried out the arrest of the suspect. However some seem to be unsatisfied with what the offices had done.

They expressed their disgruntleman on the fact that the suspect surely does not work alone. He could possibly be having some accomplices with whom he conducts his criminal businesses with and they are roaming free in the roads South Africa.
