Fighting to clean Krugersdorp up from drug capture

Following a rise in drugs in the Krugersdorp area, resident and activist Cherlyn Tshabangu is on a mission to change this. She is fighting to get rid of brothels, which she says, have been used as drug houses.

Tshabangu started Asilweni Cleaning Streets in 2012 with the aim of helping rehabilitate drug-addicted sex workers and to raise awareness about the dangers of drug abuse.

She and other community members were allegedly assaulted in one of the brothels by drug lords and she now says she fears for her life.

John Robbie spoke to Tshabangu to see how the public can assist.
