No legal hemp yet; Woman arrested in Blantyre for possessing Chamba

Police in Blantyre have arrested a 28 year-old woman for being found with five bags of cannabis sativa, locally known as chamba.

The woman, identified as Ellen Kunyenga Million and hails from Likoswe village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Likoswe in Chiradzulu district, was arrested on Wednesday at her house in Machinjiri Area 10 in Blantyre.

The law enforcers were tipped that the woman was keeping the illegal drug in her house and they rushed to the house where they found the five bags and three plastic carriers containing twists of the illicit drug, according to Blantyre Police spokesperson Elizabeth Divala.

“The bags were found in her house and she currently at Blantyre Police Station as she contravened Regulation 4a as read Section 19 of the Dangerous Drugs Act,” said Divala.

Million’s arrest follows calls by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) parliamentarian for Ntchisi North Boniface Kadzamira to legalize the marijuana.

Kadzamira told Parliament that Chamba could be a viable alternative that can help drive in forex for Malawi.
