Drug trade in South Africa worrying — The Typewriter

South Africa

Cocaine coming from Latin America often stops in South Africa before being shipped to Europe and East Asia, reports say.

In June 2017, police in South Africa seized 500 million rand worth of cocaine ($36 million) and 104 million rand worth of heroin ($7.7 million) in separate raids in Western Cape province.
