8yearold child tests positive for cocktail of hard drugs

An eight-year-old from Elsies River has tested positive for a concoction of hard drugs that consisted of mandrax, tik, heroin and cocaine, which has raised concerns of drug use by children within the Cape Flats.

The case was spotted by Franchesca Walker, Leonsdale ward councillor, last week, who stated that community workers who tried to assist the child were left dumbfounded when the boy tested positive for the four types of drugs, as reported by IOL .

In an interview with the Weekend Argus , she said that she became aware of the situation when the childs grandmother approached her for help.

I was working in my ward when the granny approached me and said her eight-year-old grandson had gone missing. I searched and searched but could not find him, said Walker.

Later in the day, while working in a different part of Leonsdale, the community workers spotted him and I tried to speak to him when I realised something was wrong, she added.
