GEORGE NEWS - Husband and wife, Lornene and Riaan Tromp, both members of the SAP Conville crime prevention unit, were hard at work to protect the citizens of George on Christmas Day.
"For the greater part of the day we assisted our colleagues in an operation conducted by the Hawks who nabbed a 45-year-old man on the N9 between Uniondale and Herold. The police found Mandrax tablets worth R3.75 million in his possession.
We were part of the back-up support team," said Lornene.
The Hawks found the drugs in a secret compartment in the roof of a white Hyundai minibus. They were assisted by the Outeniqua K9 dog unit from George and members from the Conville crime prevention unit.
Riaan told the George Herald the rest of the Christmas Day shift was peaceful. "Most people were generally well behaved except for the occasional incident that we had to defuse."
Lornene was overjoyed that the couple did not have to work on New Year's Day. "We spent New Year's Day with our daughter Lorrain, who turned one on 1 January."

Voting Poll
Finance minister Pravin Gordan says they considered a VAT increase for the 2017 budget, but that an increase should be fine-tuned so that poor people do not have to pay more. Are you willing to pay increased VAT on so-called ‘sin-items’ (alcohol, cigarettes, chocolates, confectionary, certain cuts of prime beef etc) and luxury goods so that basic items can be exempt or remain at 14%?
Yes, the privileged has a responsibility to pay for the poor.

No, everyone, regardless of income, should contribute to the state coffers. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Not as long as our taxes are disappearing down a bottomless pit without recourse.
