Innocent Kalimanshi and 37 others arrested for drug possession

The Drug Enforcement Commission -DEC- has arrested 38 suspects for being in possession of drugs and offensive weapons among other things. Among the suspects that have been apprehended is Innocent Kalimanshi and Nathan Phiri who were found with high grade cannabis, in their vehicle which has since been seized.

DEC Director-General Musonda Simwayi says the Commission has seized the premises where the group carries out its illegal activities in Chawama and will remain closed until further notice.

Dr. Simwayi says among those picked was also a 13-year old boy who was found abusing the drugs.

He says of the 38, 34 are from Chawama, 3 are from Chilenje, and 1 woman was also picked at a checkpoint with 71 bundles of miraa.

The DEC Chief adds that investigations have revealed that the people arrested were among the notorious groups that have been terrorizing the public by mounting illegal roadblocks where they searched vehicles and harassed motorists and pedestrians.

Dr. Simwayi who was speaking during a press briefing in Lusaka today, said the arrests have been made in the past two days in Chawama and Chilenje after the commission received reports.

He also noted that the commission will not relent in its operations further warning that anyone found wanting will be arrested despite their status. Dr. Simwayi said the commission will however continue to engage the public on the dangers of drug abuse.
