On Thursday, the police reported a massive drug bust on the farm, seizing R10 million worth of drugs in an operation described as the biggest they have seen.

The drug lab, which was discovered in Terra Nostra, is currently being combed over by the Hawks’ Narcotic Enforcement Bureau.

Two men appeared in the Groblersdal Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

“The two suspects – Obele Ifeanyi, 43, from Nigeria and Aldeo Mathe, 47, from Mozambique – made their first appearance in the Groblersdal Magistrate’s Court.
