The woman has done nothing wrong here. Let Hon. Kadzamira come open and defend this woman. Chamba is now legalized in this country, or else the August House had wasted taxpayers money debating about it and passing bill on its legality


Free this lady. She was not stealing. She was trying to work for herself. She needed a job and feed her kids.


The Malawi Police have no morall authority to arrest this woman not after some of their own officers sold bags of Indian hemp enroute from Chitedze research station to Salima. What has happenened to those rogue officers? Otherwise the police see this as another opportunity to sell seized hemp.
