Nabolisa gets 30 years more jail

2014-05-20 00:00

DRUG dealer Frank Nabolisa (46), who together with Sheryl Cwele recruited South Coast mother Tessa Beetge to act as a drug mule, was yesterday handed an additional 30-year jail sentence for other drug related crimes by the Wynberg regional court.

Beetge was recently released after serving a sentence for cocaine posession in Brazil.

Nabolisa and Cwele were jailed for 12 years in May 2011 for trafficking the drugs.

Hawks spokesperson Paul Ramaloko said in a statement yesterday Nabolisa was also charged on December 3, 2009 for dealing in dangerous dependence-producing drugs, and contravening the Medicine and Related Substances Act, 1965 (Act No 101 of 1965).

“He was found to be in possession of 2,4 kg of cocaine, 5,8 kg of paracetamol and 2,7 kg of Hexamine at one of his drug storage facilities in Ivory Park, Johannesburg. Today [yesterday], the Wynberg Regional Court sentenced him to 20 years’ imprisonment for dealing in drugs and 10 years’ imprisonment for contravening the Medicine and Related Substances Act, 1965 (Act No 101 of 1965). He will serve these sentences concurrently, after serving his 12-year sentence [in connection with the Beetge case],” said Ramaloko.

The head of the Hawks in Gauteng, Major-General Shadrack Sibiya applauded the investigating team for work well done.
