Several residents in White Blocks have poured their hearts out and are appealing to authorities to bring in the army to assist and clean the area of drug lords. The call for authorities to root out drug lords and bring an end to their reign of terror has been going on for years.
Residents told Laudium Today how a wave of drugs has taken over their lives, with many having lost their children to it. They pleaded to, among others, set up a special task force for all drug related crimes; help build a rehab centre; dismiss all corrupt police officers; have compulsory drug testing at schools and develop recreation centres to keep the youth busy.
A resident of White Blocks who introduced herself as Natalie said, “We know these drug dens but it is difficult to stop them because they are working with some police. It is well known that the syndicates pay the police officers a ‘protection fee’, and that is why they never get arrested,” she alleged.
When asked about their future generation, one resident said, “The term ‘future generation’ is non-existent, meaningless to us. Sending our children to school is like sending them to the lion’s den. Drug peddlers parade and sell daily to our kids.”
Shop owners in the Laudium CBD also complained of thieves terrorizing them and their customers.
A shopper told Laudium Today, “This is the best time to take back our town. Let’s clean Laudium, get rid of the thieves loitering around the CBD areas.”
