Two learners at Vukani Mawethu Secondary School in Mamelodi West were found in possession of liquor during a surprise raid at school on Wednesday morning.

The Mamelodi west police were joined by their metro counterparts and the local CPF in the search of the school premises for Operation Fiela.

Police spokesperson Captain Johannes Maheso said the police found two learners in possession of liquor during the unannounced search of the several classes.

The learners were not arrested but the police alerted their parents and the school, who were expected to deal with the matter.

Maheso said the search party found dagga on the floor in another classroom.

Maheso said it was believed that the learners had dropped the dagga when the police entered the classroom.

“The members continued with the Operation Fiela and in Section D6 Mamelodi west Rondavels few learners believed to have bunked school were also found in possession of dagga.

Their parents were also contacted and their school informed to handle the problem.”

Maheso said officers were not only looking for drugs, but anything related to crime such as dangerous weapons on school premises.

“Our main goal is to see that Mamelodi schools and identified hot spot become a crime-free zone,” said Maheso.

He said the surprise school raids would continue.

“We spoke to learners about the dangers of weapons such as knives, which are not allowed on school premises or even to carry around while at home, as they could cause serious harm,” he said.

Police also addressed the learners about substance abuse and gangsterism and how they could destroy their future.”

The officers moved to Second Chance Recovery Centre, a rehab facility in Mamelodi West section D1 but found nothing.

The officers rounded off the day by hosting a soccer match between the drug addicts at the rehabilitation centre.
