Municipal employee bust for drug peddling
​A Municipal employee was arrested after police found 18
packets of pure heroin at the  suspect’s residence.

A MUNICIPAL employee was apprehended by the Durban Metro Drug Task Team for dealing in heroin on 21 March. The Parks, Recreation and Culture (PRC) Unit employee was arrested for dealing in drugs and appeared in court on 25 March where they were granted bail.

PRC Head Thembinkosi Ngcobo said Council staff are expected at all times to conduct themselves in an exemplary manner and in ways that does not cast aspersions on the good name of the City. “The allegation is in total contradiction to this expectation. This is viewed in a serious light and no stone will be left unturned in investigation and implementation of appropriate measures.” The suspect is a general worker in the PRC Unit.

According to Metro Police Spokesperson Superintendent Glen Ndlovu the 35 year-old employee was caught with 18 packets weighing 10 grams each of pure heroin, over R5 000 in cash, a weighing scale, 30X20grams of teething powder (used asbulking agent) and drug related paraphernalia.

Ndlovu said the total estimated street value of the drugs was over R55 000. Ndlovu congratulated
Superintendent Rajen Moodley, who was in charge of the operation, as well as all involved members. EThekwini Municipality’s City Integrity and Investigations Unit (CIIU) Head Mbuso Ngcobo said Municipal staff are not above the law. “The City wants to send out a strong and clear message; that no one is above the law. We urge the public to report fraud and corruption so perpetrators can be brought to book,” said Ngcobo.

The CIIU is committed to eradicating fraud and corruption within the City and with entities doing business with the organisation. Please report all forms of fraud and corruption to the CIIU on 0800 20 20 20 or email ombuds@durban.gov.za
