He is quite worried about the widespread corruption in the Gauteng police department. According to Khumalo, working with police was successful in Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal, but he encountered major setbacks in Gauteng due to alleged collusion between police and drug dealers.
Khumalo’s sad confession raises concerns about collusion between some members of the Gauteng police force and the very criminal elements they are sworn to combat. He claims that the police officers were actually defending the drug trade and looking for ways to sabotage his efforts.
