Mike Mangena, the former Kaizer Chiefs superstar, has addressed the drug lab that was found on his farm in Randfontein.

Mangena stated in an affidavit that he was not aware of the drug lab. He said he divided his farm into two portions and rented out one half.

The Citizen reports that Mangena says the drug lab was found on the part of his farm that he rented to a person called 'Jury'.

The said plot is divided into two portions. The one portion I utilise to farm on. The other portion is leased out through my estate agency. When I was confronted by the police in this matter I was informed by my staff at the estate agency that this portion is being leased to a person who goes by the name of Jury.
