Johannesburg - Dagga plants were removed in three different areas of Katlehong on the East Rand on Thursday, according to Ekurhuleni metro police.
The plants were removed during a joint operation called “Operation Insango” (Operation Dagga) by metro police, the South African Police Service and community patrollers, said Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago.
“Three bushy areas... equivalent to a football field in size... around Hattingh bridge in Hlongawne section, as well as at the Kwesine hostel premises, were targeted,” said Kgasago.
