A 19-year-old boy of Ndola has been sentenced to 2 years imprisonment for trafficking in marijuana. Blessings Lupaka 19, was jointly charged with his sister Daniella Lupaka 25, a teacher and Isabelle Lupaka 49, his mother, all of house number 0125 Nkwazi Overspill, for trafficking in Psychotropic substances.
But his mother and sister have been discharged after an application from the state so that more investigations can be conducted in the matter. It is alleged that Blessings, Daniella and Isabelle on 6th April 2021 at Ndola jointly and whilst acting together did traffic in Pyschotropic substances namely 2028.57 grams of marijuana a herbal product of cannabis sativa without lawful authority.
When the matter came up for plea before Ndola Principal Resident Magistrate Obbister Musukwa, Blessings pleaded guilty while his sister and mother denied the charge.
Magistrate Musukwa then gave the three accused some time to liaise with their defence Lawyer from the legal aide.
Facts are that on 6th April, 2021, DEC officers received information that there was a bus coming from Lusaka with a black plastic bag that contained marijuana.
In mitigation, his lawyer said Blessings was only 19 years old and so remorseful of his actions.
Magistrate Musukwa noted the mitigation but said cases of this nature are on the increase in the district.
Later, the state applied to have the second (sister), third (mother) accused discharged as the state does more investigations.
Magistrate Musukwa then discharged the two, warning them that a discharge is not an acquittal and they can be re-arrested once the police have other evidence.
