Mr Sam Pillay dedicated his life to fighting the drug pandemic that had engulfed Chatsworth, at a time when the ‘Sugars’ drug was robbing Chatsworth of its youth.
His work and its positive impact had led to widespread awareness of different types of drugs available on the black market and the supply chain around these. Sam worked well with the police, enforcement agencies, government departments, NGO’s, other activists and political parties to rid Chatsworth of this drug menace.
He was instrumental in the identification of the drug cartels but braved any untoward reactions. He and his late wife, who supported him believed in saving precious lives that were being lost.
The Minority Front salutes the late Sam Pillay and his wife for their work in curbing the drug scourge in Chatsworth. The positive impact their NGO made was to bring about awareness of the dangers of drugs to parents and learners which reduced deaths by drug addiction. Sam understood that his life was to serve, love and bear the burdens of others. Sam and his wife shared their all with us all. May their souls rest in peace.
Hon Shameen Thakur-Rajbansi
Leader of the Minority Front
