2 sisters in hot soup for selling mutoriro


Two sisters arrested in Harare and Chitungwiza for alleged Crystal Meth dealing

In a significant breakthrough against drug peddling, authorities in Harare and Chitungwiza have apprehended two sisters on charges of illegally dealing in Crystal Meth, commonly known as “mutoriro.” The arrests were made separately by detectives from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Drugs and Narcotics unit on Friday.

According to the police, one of the sisters, Brenda Jinjike, aged 40 and also known as Mai Dee, was intercepted along Makumbe Drive in Madokero. Detectives found a sachet containing 50 grams of Crystal Meth, with an estimated street value of a staggering $5 million, inside the Mercedes Benz vehicle she was driving.

In a related incident, Letina Jinjike, aged 47 and known as Mai Mobby, was arrested at a residence on Jekacheka Road in St Marys, Chitungwiza. She was found in possession of three grams of Crystal Meth, valued at approximately $30,000.

The arrests were confirmed by Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, the national police spokesperson, in a statement. The CID Drugs and Narcotics unit acted promptly on received information, leading to the successful apprehension of the suspects.

The illegal drug trade remains a significant concern in Zimbabwe, and law enforcement agencies have been intensifying their efforts to combat the issue. Crystal Meth, a highly addictive synthetic drug, has become increasingly prevalent in recent years, posing serious health and societal risks.

The arrests not only demonstrate the commitment of law enforcement agencies to tackle drug-related crimes but also serve as a warning to others involved in such illicit activities.

In a separate development, police in Chimanimani arrested Tawanda Mlambo, aged 28, for the unlawful cultivation of 108 dagga plants in Rujeko Village, Chikukwa. The plants, measuring around 90 centimeters in height, were discovered based on received information.

Further arrests were made in Zvishavane, where Aluis Mazvangani, aged 46, was taken into custody for the illegal cultivation of 43 dagga plants in Guti Village, Mazvihwa. The plants varied in size, ranging from 30 centimeters to 1.5 meters.

The successful operations carried out by law enforcement agencies in multiple locations across the country highlight their commitment to curbing drug-related offences and protecting the well-being of communities. These arrests underline the ongoing efforts to dismantle drug networks and discourage individuals involved in criminal activities from endangering society.

The fight against drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking remains an ongoing battle, and the recent arrests serve as a reminder that law enforcement agencies are actively working to disrupt these criminal networks and ensure a safer society for all.
