Anti-drug official caught with drugs
Cape Town - A senior welfare director responsible for anti-drug programmes has been arrested after he was found in possession of tik straws and drug paraphernalia.
Die Son reported that the Western Cape social development department was investigating the arrest of Dave McNamara outside Senator Park, a notorious Cape Town apartment building, last year.
He appeared in court and the matter was postponed to April.
A department spokesperson said an investigation had been launched and that appropriate action would be taken.
Eyewitness News reports that the ANC called for McNamara to be suspended with immediate effect.
The ANC said it was shocked to hear that a chief director responsible for ant-drug problems had been caught with drugs in his possession.
