4:33 am
to understand why ceon didn't help louella. sarah campbell, bbc news. now on bbc news our world. this week the programme tells the story of a south african journalist's attempts to save a family friend from drug addiction. across south africa communities are being decimated by a deadly narcotic known as nyaope. it is going straight into the blood come your heart, your lungs. this is the story ofa drug heart, your lungs. this is the story of a drug epidemic fuelled by corruption. and one man's fight for redemption.
4:34 am
a drug epidemic is raging in townships across my country. nyaope it isa townships across my country. nyaope it is a highly addictive heroin —based narcotic, which sometimes contains hiv medication. it's often mixed with marijuana and smoked or injected. this drug is slowly eating its weight at south africa's first poster apart a generation. and i wa nt to poster apart a generation. and i want to find out why. my name is golden mtika, i am a local crime reporter. i know the dangers of nyaope more than most. in the past six years the drug has claimed the lives of two of my young nephews. i have come to the old neighbourhood in search of answers. in the crowd
4:35 am
eyespot one of my nephew's ulcerans. jesus came from a good home and was a lwa ys jesus came from a good home and was always immaculately dressed. i cannot believe our has —— in the crowd eyespot one of my nephew's ulcera ns crowd eyespot one of my nephew's ulcerans will stop i want to want to talk to him. but he is too far gone. seeing jesus has brought back painful memories. in the space of five years i lost my twin nephews to nyaope. both of them, my nephews, we re nyaope. both of them, my nephews, were nyaope addicts. we tried to give them all guide them to stop smoking nyaope. at the end of the date they ended up losing their lives. this is where they have been laid to rest. —— at the end of the
4:36 am
day. i am sitting here, laid to rest. —— at the end of the day. iam sitting here, right laid to rest. —— at the end of the day. i am sitting here, right on top of this great, and i have my two nephews lying here, who died for nothing. life is so cheap. the loss of my nephews has had a devastating effect on me and my family, but we are not alone. most families have been affected by nyaope. you only have to turn the radio on and tv, newspapers. jussie stories of nyaope everyday. this is power breakfast here on power. i want to hearfrom you how nyaope has affected your life. what is it about your brother that
4:37 am
is disappointing new and hurting your? after what happened to my nephews, i am determined to helpjesus escaped his addiction, before he suffers the same fate. i find his addiction, before he suffers the same fate. ifind him scavenging in an open sewer. like thousands of other addicts, he is desperate to buy his first six of the day. he agrees to talk, but seemed distracted. i need to finish rolling and start...
4:38 am
is there anything that you wouldn't do if you didn't get a fix? how are you feeling? but feeding his addiction is a co nsta nt but feeding his addiction is a constant challenge. is it hard to get nyaope into the township? it's
4:39 am
ha rd get nyaope into the township? it's hard seeing just how low jesus get nyaope into the township? it's hard seeing just how lowjesus has fallen. but in the nightmare world of nyaope you can always sink lower. asi of nyaope you can always sink lower. as i discovered, some ofjesus's friends are going to potentially deadly extremes to feed their addiction. in search of a bigger hit, they not only injected the drug, but shared the same needle. so are you not scared of hiv? these quys are you not scared of hiv? these guys are are you not scared of hiv? these guys are already taking one hell of a risk, but what i was about to see next was truly chilling. after injecting the nyaope, the addict draws his own blood are back out into the syringe. to make the hits go further, this
4:40 am
mixture of blood and nyaope will then be injected by the others. what i am witnessing is sheer madness. when i saw that touring blood from
4:41 am
himself and injecting the other one, it scared me most. —— drawing blood. seeing jesus' friends risking their lives for nyaope makes me more determined than ever to try to save him. a few days later, the rehab centre has agreed to takejesus. and i go to tried and find him again. i phoned him at one of his regular
4:42 am
spots, but it's not looking good, he's already smoking —— i find spots, but it's not looking good, he's already smoking —— ifind him. i wonder if he will still feel the same about going into rehab. do you think you will miss this? jesus says his goodbyes. his resolve is strong. but i need to get into the centre before his cravings begin. —— to get him. the 10th commandment rehab centre in tembisa
4:43 am
claims to have a success rate of over 70%. it runs a strict regime. jesusis over 70%. it runs a strict regime. jesus is looking tense. joseph is a former nyaope addict whom enters new arrivals. —— who mentors. joseph sitsjesus down and explains the centre's rules. he
4:44 am
looks scared. but it's too late to back out. jesus has been addicted to nyaope for almost a decade. he will be kept under lock and key until he is clean. this programme may be his last hope for redemption. singing -- singing. the next day i returned to see how jesusis the next day i returned to see how jesus is doing.
4:45 am
but, despite the cravings, jesus still seems determined. it's time for me to leavejesus. now, he must fight his demons alone. i hope he can find the strength to beat nyaope. if he can't, there's a chance he dean brill —— if he can, there is a chance he can rebuild his life and connect with himself again. thousands of young south africans are in thousands of young south africans a re in exactly thousands of young south africans are in exactly the same situation as jesus, but who are the shadowy people responsible for flooding jesus, but who are the shadowy people responsible forflooding our townships with the drug? through my underworld contacts, i have managed
4:46 am
to find a nyaope trafficker who is willing to talk to me, but he is suspicious. i have heard he is a key supplier to thousands of local nyaope dealers. 0k, ok, the stuff we have here, how long will it last year? how much to get? 0ne township, ten kilos. i can't imagine the misery this is calling. how does it make you feel, when you look at one of these people in the township who has lost hope in his life just because he is making this stuff? —— smoking this stuff?
4:47 am
all right, so this is basically for the sake of money. nyaope has long been illegal in south africa, so how can dealers like these operate so openly? how do you deal with the cops? all right, you just have to bribe them. how much money do you give a cop? is it only the junior level cops, or up is it only the junior level cops, or up to the higher end? here selling nyaope, and he doesn't care. what he cares about is money. i have lost my two nephews through this nyaope. i think for me, the
4:48 am
government needs to come in very strongly and arrest each and every person who is dealing in nyaope, because they are killing our society. i have managed to find a cop who is prepared to talk about corrupt officers, who are feeding off the drug trade. i am meeting him ata off the drug trade. i am meeting him at a secret location. hello. hello,, hello, hello, my friend. i am around this area. 0k. he sounds a bit nervous, but he has promised that he is coming. we have disguised his identity to protect him. do you understand nyaope is now
4:49 am
very common in oui’ him. do you understand nyaope is now very common in our streets, on almost every corner of our streets? yes, yes, most especially in our townships. they are, there is a lot of nyaope. it is killing our country, our community, our children and our brothers. how frustrating as it to you? i am trying to combat crime and protect members of the community, but some of our members, they are taking bribes. to those who supplied nyaope. how could the corruption be stopped ? supplied nyaope. how could the corruption be stopped? to stop corruption, arrest those police officers. who is involved in crime? this cop is taking a big risk talking to me. it's very dangerous to us to cover up that story. they can kill me and also my family —— colour that story. thank you for speaking to me, and be safe. you are welcome. the most disappointing thing about it at this point is
4:50 am
getting bribes from the dealers is that they are giving them the freedom to operate in our townships freely, and making drugs accessible to our children very easily. i want to our children very easily. i want to find outjust how to our children very easily. i want to find out just how widespread to our children very easily. i want to find outjust how widespread the problem of corruption within the police force has become. a nyaope street dealer has agreed to wear a secret camera, but it is very risky. the cop sees itjust after changing shift and they will drive around the township seeing each and every dealer to collect money from them. it doesn't take long for a cop to ta ke it doesn't take long for a cop to take a bribe. 0ver over the next four days, our cameras ca ptu re over the next four days, our cameras capture police officers repeatedly receiving bribes from a non— drug
4:51 am
dealer. we have obscure their faces to protect his identity —— known drug dealer. this is pretty obvious. a policeman goes in, and a dealer of nyaope comes with the police and tell them business is not good, but i will give you a cold drink. and then south african terms, cold drink means i will give you bribe money. for the love of money, theyjust collect money and they leave these drug dealers to run around in our streets, sell drugs freely. so to me, this is not good. it is not good at all. not only to me, but to eve ryo ne at all. not only to me, but to everyone else in our society. we put these allegations to the south african police service. in response, he said... —— they said... and highlighted recent high—profile arrest the drug dealers in the
4:52 am
johannesburg area. it has been six months since i leftjesus in rehab. we have been supporting his treatment, and i've heard he's now cleaned of nyaope. hi, jesus. hi, man. you are looking clean, you are looking very clean. very neat. you are looking... just look at you, man. i can't believe this is you. you are looking great, man. how has it been at the rehab? the hardest pa rt it been at the rehab? the hardest part was my first three days and the first week. there's pains, those sleepless nights, you know. i'm finding it hard to put words to it, because even the thought of it is, like, i can't. do you think you would ever go back? no. to smoking, no. i wouldn't go back to that.
4:53 am
would ever go back? no. to smoking, no. i wouldn't go back to thatlj would ever go back? no. to smoking, no. i wouldn't go back to that. i am taking him home to meet his family, for the first time in years. taking him home to meet his family, for the first time in yearslj taking him home to meet his family, for the first time in years. i am a bit nervous, you know. i am a bit nervous, but yes. how is she going to react towards me, that is what worries me. what happens if your mum rejects you? that's. .. that's going to hit me hard. home, sweet home. 0h, home, sweet home.
