Lynne or anybody: what is dagga and "toyi-toying"? Both come from the South African
Sunday Times.

"On Friday night, police arrested one person for rape and six others - including a
city-centre shop owner - for dealing and possession of dagga or cocaine."

>From http://www.suntimes.co.za/1999/12/05/news/news08.htm

"THE struggle continues for Tselane Tambo. It's no longer about placards and
toyi-toying for the daughter of the late ANC president Oliver Tambo, but about which knife
to use when the fish course comes around."
