He said the suspect orgina­ted from Durban and had been employed to take care of the pigs of the piggery project at Sannaspos.

Xuma said the dagga, weighing 99,9 kg with an estimated street value of R99 900, was discovered after the police had received information.

The suspect is expected to appear in the Botshabelo Magistrate’s Court this week facing a charge regarding the illegal dagga plantation.
