Zululand Police Cluster has promised to intensify their operations as the festive season approaches, Zululand Observer reports.

Ngome, Gelukstadt and Louwsburg police stations conducted a joint operation along the R69 road from Pongola to Vryheid, and arrested two suspects for being found in possession of 20 bags of dagga.

Police Captain Nkosie Gwala said the two suspects were aged 26 and 34.

“We were doing a stop and search looking for drugs, illegal firearms, drunken driving, driving without valid licence and unroadworthy vehicles and dangerous weapons,” she said.
