Drug Trafficking lands three Zimbabwean women in trouble

THREE ladies were blocked in Harare and Mutare in separated situations after they were found in possession of 281kg of mbanje and 50 jugs of BronCleer cough syrup.

Another 75 individuals have been captured countrywide for managing in crystal methamphetamine drugs, normally known as "mutoriro".

The three ladies are Patricia Munyengeri (38), Jennifer Mahachi (28) who were both captured in the city while Chenal Mukungatu (34) was captured in Mutare.

Munyengeri was captured in Epworth and found with 20kg x 13 sacks mbanje weighing 260kg while Mahachi was found in possession of 50 x 100mls of BronCleer cough syrup.

In Mutare, Mukungatu was blocked with 21kg mbanje along the Mutare-Chimanimani Road.

Public police representative Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi affirmed the captures.

"Detectives in Harare followed up on a tip off and captured Patricia Munyengeri matured 38 at her home in Epworth for unlawful managing in perilous drugs. The suspect was found in possession of 20kg x 13 packs of free dagga weighing 260kg. For another situation, detectives in Harare followed up on a tip off and captured Jennifer Mahachi matured 28 for possession of unregistered drugs available to be purchased. The suspect was found in possession of 50 x 100mls of BronCleer syrup," he said.

Asst Comm Nyathi added, "In a connected case, on December 31, 2021 detectives in Mutare who were on the lookout along Mutare-Chimanimani Road captured Chenal Mukungatu matured 34 for illicit possession of 21kg of dagga along Dangamvura Link Road."

In the interim, since December 27, 2021 to January 2, 2022, 75 individuals were captured countrywide for managing in crystal methamphetamine drug under the continuous activity 'No to Crystal Meth'.

A large portion of the suspects are as yet helping police with examinations and will show up in court soon.

The captures came reports that maltreatment of the hazardous drug called crystal methamphetamine, ordinarily known as "mutoriro", "dombo" or "guka", by adolescents has arrived at disturbing levels with something like 100 young fellows and ladies showing up at the Harare Magistrates Court.

The ascent in situations where individuals are managing in hazardous drugs is faulted for the flood in instances of drug-initiated psychological sicknesses.

The greater part of individuals creating dysfunctional behaviors from the drug are not in clinic or being treated as short term patients, but rather are seen meandering the roads while others are acting unusually at malls.

In many networks, youngsters and young ladies who misuse the risky drugs have changed their conduct, yet remain part of the local area until the disease turns out to be more articulated.

They are possibly taken to mental units when they turn fierce, show self-destructive inclinations or create issues to other people.

At the Harare Magistrates Court, the cases presently come every day, an improvement that incited the specialists to allot them to the Special Anti-Corruption Court, which has dealt with something like 100 cases since July last year, of either having crystal meth or manhandling it.

In spite of the fact that drug addicts might manhandle other hazardous drugs like dagga, marijuana cakes, a denied cough syrup called BronCleer (mustang) and illegal brews, crystal meth is ruling the genuine finish of the drug misuse range.
