AfriForum Youth today welcomed the successful drug raid executed by the South African Police Service (SAPS) at the Potchefstroom College of Agriculture. This, after the Youth Organisation earlier this year submitted various complaints to the College, including drug dealing on the campus, but College Management denied it.
A residence student was arrested for amongst others the dealing in and possession of drugs. It is allegedly the SASCO Chairperson of the campus.
“Here we have evidence that the College Management is living in denial regarding the crises on the campus. They failed to act when complaints were submitted and repeatedly said AfriForum Youth should provide evidence,” Henk Maree, National Chairman of AfriForum Youth, said.
AfriForum Youth is searching for evidence which can support the other complaints, such as theft, maladministration and education problems, and they simultaneously demand action from Management.
“AfriForum Youth wants to congratulate the SAPS with their success. We have suspected a drug problem for a long time, and wanted it rooted out urgently, but the College Management turned a deaf ear. We hope that this drug finding by the SAPS will now force Management to act immediately,” Maree concluded.
