Lesufi, addressing the Tshwane Anti-Drug Movement pre-launch at Tshwane House last night, said he hoped the initiative would curb the problem of drugs in schools and help protect the future of children.
The movement was conceived as a response to the death of Tshwane taxi driver Jabu Baloyi at the hands of a suspected dealer in the CBD two weeks ago, and will be launched in November.
“I hope the movement will strengthen the organisations as the first step to tackling the problem. I endorse you; I will support you and let’s strengthen this movement because we can’t be defeated by cowards,” Lesufi said.
Lesufi said the police on their own had failed to ensure that schoolchildren did not become hooked on drugs.
