Provincial police spokesperson  Lt-Col Mavela Masondo said the man was arrested in Clayville, Ekurhuleni, on Thursday. “It is reported that the dagga was destined for Cape Town,” said Masondo.

“Members of the SA Narcotics Enforcement Bureau together with members of crime intelligence and K9 Gauteng responded to a complaint about a house at Clayville in Olifantsfontein.”
