The Road Block Coordinator Assistant Superintendent Anitta Njanji, says the suspect Stewart M’dala was traveling to Zomba in a bus registration number BR 5967 belonging to National bus Company.

“Upon arrival at Chingeni road block, the officers found an expand suitcase containing loose Canabis sativa commonly known as Indian hemp weighing approximately 50 kilograms. Upon investigations, the officer discovered that the cannabis sativa belonged to the suspect Stewart M’dala,” says Njanji.

He says the suspect is in police custody waiting to appear before court where he will answer a case of being found in possession of Canabis Sativa without licence contrary to regulation 19(1) as read with section 4(a) of Dangerous Drug Act.

Stewart M’dala comes from Robertson village, Traditional Authority Mlumbe in Zomba district.

Last week police at the same road block also recovered a ‘check bag’ full of Indian hemp in a Premier Coach which was heading Blantyre from Mzuzu via Zalewa.

31,i agree with you. Recover! Why was it missing before police recovered it? The nearest word to re-cover is re-posses in this context.


Chamba was displayed like bonya and sold openly during the commemoration of Matafale in Chileka, why did the police not confiscate it and arrest those who were busy selling the mibulu?
