SAPS NEWS: Scottburgh police destroyed a plantation of dagga in Kelso...

Media Statement from Kwazulu-Natal Media Centre
Corporate Communication and Liaison
South African Police Service


Captain Vijay Moodley, Sergeant Christopher Mahlawe and Constables Mxolisi Ngcobo and Zoleka Mhlawuli of the Scottburgh SAPS carried out a “Back to Basics” crime prevention operation yesterday, 12 January and while walking beat in the Kelso area, came upon a plantation of dagga. Hundreds of dagga trees at various stages of growth, were plucked out by their roots and removed to a dumpsite for destruction. Nobody was arrested as the plantation, which was situated deep in the bushes west of the R102 Old Main Road, was away from any dwellings and unattended at the time of its discovery.  Most of the trees were ready for harvesting.


KwaZulu-Natal Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa commended Captain Vijay Moodley and her team for being observant and pulling out the trees despite the searing heat of the midday sun. “We will be visiting all the areas under cultivation in the different localities to check if any more dagga is being grown. We are serious about destroying the drugs before they reach the streets where they destroy lives and contribute to crime”, said the Acting Provincial Commissioner.
