Zimbabwean drug mule nabbed in India

via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Zimbabwean drug mule nabbed in India 22 April 2015

A 24-year-old Zimbabwean woman was arrested at India’s Indira Gandhi International Airport last week after she was found in possession of 12,5 kg of ephedrine drugs worth over $1,7 million.

According to media reports, the woman, identified as Sandra Moyo, was arrested by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) because of her suspicious behaviour.

A body search found nothing, but when her luggage went through an X-ray scanner, two packets of pseudo-ephedrine weighing 12,5kg were discovered.

“She came on a tourist visa to India. She was supposed to travel from IGI Airport to Johannesburg via Abu Dhabi, flight No. EY-211,” a CISF spokesperson was quoted as saying.

After apprehending Moyo, the CISF called Narcotics Bureau Sleuths who took her into custody and seized the drugs.

In April last year, a 32-year-old Zimbabwean student, Elder Rizive, was arrested at Thiruvananthapuram Airport, India, after being found in possession of 25kg ephedrine drugs.

A year earlier, Lydia Ndira Murwira (43) was arrested for smuggling ephedrine at Indira Gandhi International Airport.

In 2012, 16 Zimbabwean women were stuck in Asian jails with 14 convicted of drug smuggling and two others awaiting the conclusion of their trial and face the death penalty if convicted.

Of the 16 women, 14 were jailed in China where they had been convicted of offences ranging from drug trafficking to illegal ivory trade.

    Kkkkkkk. Regayi ndiseke zvangu nhamo serugare. Not that, I don’t feel for these poor souls who take so much risk on behalf of the drug lords, who live large & inexplicable lives in posh suburbs like Chishawasha Hills, Kambanji, Chisipite, Borrowdale, etc. I do very much, but these are also some of the few people who after one or a few successful trips, of such sullied & risky adventures, easily join the ‘zviri kufaya’ chorus. Unohwa vachingoti zvirikufaya – ehee, haa, Hre iri kufaya. Apo vanhu chavari kuita chinovonekwa hapana – unongovana kuvakwa kwamazidzimba nekuchinjaniswa kwazimota. Wodoshaya kuti zvikumbofamba sei.

    Anyway, Mwari akati munhu adye cheziya – in othe words vaka mazidzimba ako nekudhiraivha mazimota ako zvichibva pane zvinovonekwa zvauri kuita. Kwete maDrugs, nechimbavha, nezvimwe zvakadaro. Handizvoba; kwete.
