Notorious Eastern Cape mandrax druglord Livingstone Napoleon, 61, has evaded a 10-year prison sentence after entering into a plea agreement with the state to pay a fine of one million rand instead.
Livingstone was found guilty of drug dealing, drug possession and money laundering in early August. Sanca’s Eastern Cape director Roger Weimann was outraged at the leniency of the sentence, which he feared would set a precedent.
According to him, how can 10-year jail sentence be converted to R1million fine. This does not in any way deepen a country’s jurisprudence.
