This Millipede was captured in my garden, Free state, South Africa

Most millipedes eat decaying leaves and other dead plant matter, moisturizing the food with secretions and then scraping it in with the jaws. However, they can also be a minor garden pest, especially in greenhouses where they can cause severe damage to emergent seedlings. Signs of their damage include the stripping of the outer layers of a young plant stem and irregular damage to leaves.
