The number one drug-busting team in the country "Sizokthola" crew was attacked and blocked from exposing a drug dealer in Rustenburg, North West.
According to a source who was having a few drinks at Coconut Lounge, the Sizokthola crew walked in and introduced themselves. He said they explained who they were and what they came to do."Some people around the pub got excited when they saw Moja Love presenter Xolani Khumalo and there was suddenly an abuzz in the place. From where the crew was standing, they could see their suspect but couldnâ€™t reach him because suddenly the management and security of Coconut Lounge blocked them," said the source.
THINGS GOT HEATED
The source told ZiMoja that things got heated and to avoid an altercation, the Sizokthola crew tried to get out of the pub but they were blocked by security. "Eventually some of them managed to walk away but others were locked in since the security locked the gate. The crew that was outside broke the gate lock and managed to rescue the remaining members. It was a sad thing to watch because itâ€™s clear that criminals are protected at all costs. That man they protected is a drug dealer killing the youth yet management and security protected him at all costs. Cry my beloved country," added the source. It also alleged that when crew members were outside the premises, Coconut Lounge security threw bottles at them damaging one of the vehicles. North West SAPS spokesperson Colonel Amanda Funani confirmed that a case of malicious damage to property was opened with Rustenburg police. "No one has been arrested yet and police investigations are continuing," Funani said.
