It is more than likely that they are some Indian South Africans who don’t pay their workers the minimum wage. But why pick only on Indian businessmen? What about the other races? These types of comments from Julius Malema are uncalled for and must be heeded with serious caution.

There is definitely a sense of fear. This is a harsh reminder of deep expressed anger stoking the fires to destabilise the Indian community.

Parents be wary – a new drug called syrup is on the rise. #CAPondaRUN

High school children mix it with fizzy drinks in squeeze bottles to disguise it.

A cough mixture containing codeine, that the users call ‘syrup’ is apparently famous amongst young high school children who mix it with fizzy drinks in squeeze bottles to disguise it.
