Protesters have gathered in Cape Town to take part in an anti-drug campaign. The campaign is aimed against the increase of substance abuse particularly the drug known as ‘tik’.
It has been reported that the Foundation for a Drug Free Society is organising the event. A memorandum is to be handed to provincial government as part of the campaign.
Chairperson for the Foundation for a Drug Free Society, Maulana Mogamat has been quoted by SABC News as saying: “With all these plans that have been put in place, the scourge of drug abuse is still increasing and we need to get that information from the state, and find out why their plans are not working.”
