COMMUNITIES AT WAR WITH DRUGS

COMMUNITIES AT WAR WITH DRUGS

 

 Drugs especially nyaope is taking over our communities, the youth are taking drugs and terrorising the community. Nyaope users are stealing from their parents and neighbours, selling stolen goods in order to raise money to buy the drug. Some are going to an extent of robbing people in the streets of their belongings and the township streets are no longer safe for pedestrians at night.

Parents and guardians are suffering from depression because of their children who are nyaope users.  I think people should stop creating a market for stolen goods. They should refrain from buying stolen goods at all as they are encouraging these youth to continue taking drugs.  I believe that if everyone stops buying stolen goods these nyaope users won’t be able to buy the drug as a result curbing the drugs in our communities. Lastly parents should intervene fast when they notice change of behaviour in their children, as this can also help to stop them from taking drugs at an early stage.
