The arrest of Mark Zinde for the murder of his mother, well-known broadcaster Hope Zinde and his charges for drug possession has sparked concerns in communities about the scourge of drugs in society.
Many callers have phoned in to talk about the destructive effect of drug users on their families.
Caller Thando phone in to the Xolani Qwala show in desperation. She says her husband is a drug user and she does not know where to turn for help.
She recounts how drug users go to drug house to use. The dealers then phone families to come pay the bill.
They phone the wife or the mother to come and pay the bill. The more they keep them there the more the money goes up.— Thando, caller
I have gone there with the police. I have endangered my life several times.— Thando, caller
She says she has lodged complaints at police stations but nothing has been done.
Xolani Gwala says they will get in touch with SAPS, and he appealed to anyone who can assist Thando in any way.
