Police in Dedza have arrested a Zimbabwean Woman for allegedly being found in possession of approximately 2kg of cocaine.

According to the police, the woman was arrested at Dedza Border Post as she was trying to cross the border to South Africa on Tuesday.

Dedza Police spokesperson, Sergeant Edward Kabango confirmed of the arrest and identified the suspect as Similo Ndovi, 36.

“She had a baggage sealed with tape all round and this raised suspicion in our officer on duty and after removing the tape to conduct a thorough search, the cocaine was found packed and neatly sealed in a Ceres Juice packet,” explained Kabango.

He said upon interrogation, Ndlovu claimed that she had just been given the baggage by a friend who asked her to pass it on to another person in South Africa and that she (Ndovi) did not know the contents of the parcel.

However, according to Kabango, the suspected drug-smuggler’s passport indicated that she had been to India and Bangladesh within the recent two weeks.

Meanwhile Ndovi will soon appear in Court to answer charges of being in possession of illicit drugs contrary to the laws of the land.
