Nyaope addict recovered


Numerous visions of young people destroyed by an enemy drug ‘nyaope’ but for a man from Ga Mphahlele that has not happened. Despite two years in addiction of using drugs, Mojalefa Lesetja (24) has conquered the victory.

Mojalefa claims that he is now drug free despite negative thoughts he was receiving from people when he was addicted.

“Now that I am free from drugs, I can now return to the university to complete my studies,” said Mojalefa

He said peer pressure and low self-esteem contributed majorly.

“I chose unkind friends and they taught me to take drugs. Everything happened fast and my initial goals never went accordingly and I lost my bursary during my second year. Instead of blaming my behaviour I turn the blind eye and took blame to everyone who was close to me,” said twenty four years old.  

He said he is now ready to take the spear where he lastly lost it and ready to fight back.

Mojalefa said good friends would tell when you are not doing things right.

“My parents never lost hope even when I was addicted. I was forced to rehab,” said Mojalefa

“By God’s grace I am still doing very well without drugs,” he explained.

He regrets people he lost in his life while taking nyaope. “I lost many friends, brothers and sisters while I was an addict,”

He said at rehab he evident some patient who lost their jobs, spouses and parents.

“Addicted parents have their kids taken by social worker, which is really hard decision,” said Mojalefa.

He adds “nyaope is a free reaching demon, it does not care whether you are rich or poor. It literally tears you into pieces both psychologically and emotionally,”

Mojalefa urge young people to speak out about the issue affecting them in lives because they might end up using drugs.

“Drug addiction is very dangerous, especially when it is used to pain relief. Our guardians should give us their full support,”
