    Seems Perlemoen is not only sought after but very very profitable. Why the hell doesn't SA farm with them for export???

      ZA does have a couple of perly farms.

    Clean it and cook it then feed it to the homeless and the poor. Its a meal. But I guess it will be dumped...gotta love our intelligent people

    Couldn't this raid have been carried out with a little more vigilence - like when somebody's home!?

    @sarel i also guess so!the Chinese who recently killed our own drug mule by injection.Why not take home advantage and give a lesson to them on death penalty.Parlemeon worth 4.6million rands must bear a death penalty if it was in an Asian country.
