Drug abuse contributes drastically to most violent crimes and they endanger the lives
of many people, destroying many lives including the future of young people. This
is according to Mpumalanga Community Safety, Security and Liaison MEC Vusi Shongwe,
when applauding the police for the recent major drug bust that occurred in the province.
The police at Lebombo Port of Entry discovered Mandrax tablets to the value of about
R3 million hidden in a truck that was coming from the direction of Mozambique on
19 July 2015. It is believed that the truck was destined to Johannesburg. The police
were doing their normal routine search when they discovered the drugs.
