Tessa Beetge Arrested In South Africa for Trafficking

March 17th,
The wife of Siyabonga C. Cwele, South Africa's Minister of Intelligence, has been implicated by South African and Brazilian authorities in an international drugs trafficking case.

Sheryl Cwele, whose husband has headed South Africa's intelligence Ministry since last September, was found to have exchanged dozens of emails, letters and text messages with a woman arrested last June in Brazil, while secretly transporting over $300,000-worth of raw cocaine.

The woman, Tessa Beetge, from Margate, a resort town in KwaZulu-Natal, traveled last summer from South Africa to Colombia and Peru, and from there to São Paulo, Brazil, where she was arrested on June 13, while transiting through on a flight to Johannesburg.
