A CHIPINGE man was yesterday arrested after he was found with more than 800kg of dagga.
Simba Kakuni, 35, was found in possession of bags stashed with processed marijuana, weighing 811 kilograms.
Police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, confirmed the arrest and promised to provide further details today.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police recovered sacks stashed with dagga from a Chipinge man,” said Ass Comm Nyathi.
“Investigations are in progress and further details will be released soon.”
Cannabis in Zimbabwe is illegal except for licensed medical use.
Those who break the law could be jailed for up to 12 years.
Zimbabwe recently scrapped rules requiring sole state ownership for cannabis farming to encourage investment in the plant for industrial and medical use.
