Two jailed 5 years for dagga possession


TWO Nyanga men were last week jailed for five years each for illegal possession of dagga weighing 17,5kg.


Tendai Mufudza (27) and Eutropia Shonhiwa (33), both from the Ruwangwe area in Nyanga, were convicted on their plea of guilty to the offence when they appeared before magistrate Ignatio Mhene last Thursday.

The court initially slapped each of them with seven-year jail terms but then suspended two years on condition of good behaviour.

The men were intercepted and arrested at a police checkpoint at Nyamhuka I in Nyanga on December 17 this year as they were transporting their dagga on a Harare-bound bus.

Kelvin Mufute prosecuted.
