The insisting problem is worrying to the entire community members who see their kids being trapped in the scourge.
The fight against drug abuse can be fought through many ways but prayer is one important tool to use in waging the war.
That’s how the police in Vosman, eMalahleni feel about the issue.
Both the Vosman police and the eMalahleni Women Against Substance Abuse or Ewasa last week Thursday (28 Feb) organised a prayer meeting in Kwa-Guqa’s Extension 14.
For the past years the two have been working together in reporting and sending dealers to jail.
Constable Khomotso Maluleke said the prayer event will happen every Thursday “at drug crime spots”.
“Ewasa reported so many information to us and dealers were arrested and sentenced but still children are still have access in getting drugs.
“They said they said this time they wanted to work with us in inviting God to the fight against the crime,” Maluleke said this week Friday.
“And also to pray for police to be able to work easily and be protected by God,” she said.
Ewasa said “enough is enough about drugs as it causes many crimes”.
They also invite those who wish to quit to come join them as they gather and speak to the Lord.
