      On the contrary they are actually south african born and bred, don't u think their nationality wouldve been revealed if they are nigerians as most people widely assume? Wake up and smell the coffee bro, we have real drug barons that are SA citizens! Wish the government can kill the disease than to tamper with the symptom, stop blaming foreigners on everything boogie man!

    it's more like a R200m bust before the cops arrived, after they put in the report it was more of a "R100m" bust.
