Police service warrant officer arrested with cocaine worth R200m

Four suspects arrested with a consignment of pure cocaine estimated at R200 million. Amongst the arrested is an South African police service warrant officer, Gauteng Traffic Senior Officer and a National Intelligence Unit Officer.

It's no secret that police and even senior officials within SAPS are deeply involved in the smuggling of drugs into South Africa. Apparently now and then drug busts are planned by the government so that the public will believe that drug crimes are attended to decisively.

World criminal syndicates see South Africa as a cash in transit place or as a market place for illegal dealings. The public says this drug bust reminds them of how most vicious Mexican gangs like Los Zetas, Sinaloa started. They made sure they recruited high skilled and well trained serving police and right now it looks like South Africa is sliding towards that.

South Africa needs a massive clean up of corrupt police, they are a huge setback. It's like fetching water with a bucket riddled with holes at the bottom. 

Police officers that work hard and with dignity should be rewarded publically to try and encourage others to do better because South Africa has alot of criminals in the police department, corrupt police officers that worship money over the country

We thank the dedicated officers who arrested criminals who were hiding their criminality under the blue shirt.
