Pretoria – Tshwane has invested R50m to fight the scourge of drugs, Mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa said on Thursday.“Drugs are a scourge which, if not attended to, will erode the fabric of society. It’s affecting young people and they resort to crime,” Ramokgopa told reporters after delivering his State of the City address.He said the city was doing all it could to fight drug addiction, particularly nyaope, which had ravaged many communities.To date, 48 local drug action committees had been established in areas such as Soshanguve, Mabopane, Winterveldt, Ga-Rankuwa, Hammanskraal, Atteridgeville, Olievenhoutbosch, Cullinan, Mamelodi and surrounds, and Bronkhorstspruit.Ramokgopa announced plans for a campaign aimed at the youth called “Tswa Daar”, which means “leave it” or “stop it”. It was intended to reduce drug use by raising awareness of the negative consequences.Rehabilitation centres would be developed with NGOs. The city was currently evaluating proposals from 43 NGOs for partnership and support. This would be concluded by the end of May.
