Malawian duo nabbed in South Africa mandrax factory

Johannesburg Metropolitan Police on Tuesday evening arrested two Malawians and a South Africa man in an old Church that was turned into mandrax drug manufacturing factory.

It is alleged the trio were not living at the Old Grace Church situated on the Hallgate smallholdings in Nigel, Ekurhuleni but trekked daily to make mandrax, according SABC 3 and the Star newspaper reports.

Gauteng Provisional Police Spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel KatlegoMogale told The Star newspaper that Police were alerted to a fire that stated in the building but found R3 million worth of chemicals used to make mandrax.

Police have not identified the trio beyond their nationalities.

“The Nigel Police members received an arson complaint at 5.40pm. On their arrival, they found neighbours were trying to put the fire. On further investigations they found drums, bags and buckets full of chemicals and acids in and outside the premises,” said Mogale.

South African Police are trying to find the alleged drug kingpin, who was paying the trio R20,000 per month.
