Dangerous drug in KZN Author faces charges
‘ZOMBIE drug’ flakka hit the streets of Durban this week. Police arrested a 32-year-old man who was in possession of 10 bags of the drug.
The drug, also known as “bath salts”, is rife in Australia and the US and can cause users to become abusive and violent. It is believed to be 10 times more powerful than cocaine but much cheaper.
Traces of flakka have been found by police in Pinetown, Chatsworth and Wentworth. CRIMINAL charges have been laid against The President’s Keepers author Jacques Pauw by the State Security Agency over the leaking of classified information.
The book, which revealed details of alleged corruption involving President Jacob Zuma, was launched in Joburg this week.
Pauw’s lawyers said they were willing to fight the matter in court.
It became the fastest-selling book in South Africa and a global best-seller on Amazon.
