So many things I don’t understand.

The four men burst in at the door of a homestead and demand the drug “Sugars”,

A bewildered man says that he doesn’t have what they are looking for and they kill him and all of his – one 18-year-old escapes, but they track him down and kill him next. Then they go to the next humble abode, smash their way in and shoot dead a man and the pregnant woman in the bed beside him.

Firing on withdrawal, bloodlust and a madness yet to be quantified, they allow  a man to live, after raping his thirteen-year-old daughter in front of him. The horrified police walk around the scene without direction, and the cop in charge stammers that they have a few leads – no-one, absolutely no-one, tells us WTF “Sugars” is… (IOL and ETV news)

If there is a substance on this planet that drives human beings to devolve into unbeasts capable of this, I’d be working days and nights to find out what, where, how and who it is.  Maybe it explains, like that exquisitely crafted helltail of opium, cocaine and dagga (brown brown) fed to child soldiers in West African war-zones, the kind of mindless violence that is happening in SA. 

Well, I went and found out for them – and if you know anyone who gives a rat’s ass, I’ve posted it below.  If everyone in charge of anything in this country wasn’t so busy looting the store, stuffing every crack in the dam with cash or desperately trying to keeping secrets, maybe they would have figured that we need to drug test every single violent criminal and set up proper rehab programmes .  It’s okay, I don’t expect anyone to get it – they’re not living where these ghouls prowl.  But I’m putting it out there – y’all can’t pretend no-one told you…

‘Sugars’ is the street name of a popular drug in South Africa which is a heroin-derivative where heroin is mixed with small amounts of residual cocaine. It is then used together with other drugs like cannabis (marijuana, dagga) or inhaled on its own. The drug mix is cut with other substances that give it bulk and may make the effects more potent – the most common of these bulking agents being rat poison. Like tik it has become a popular drug among teens and it is highly addictive with a poor rate of recovery. (information from
