Two years for Marijuana trafficking

The Nkhunga Magistrate’s Court in Nkhotakota on Friday sentenced Charles Kachiminga (29) to two years imprisonment or in default pay a K60000 fine for being found with Cannabis Sativa popularly known as Malawi Gold or Chamba. Nkhotakota Police Station deputy spokesperson Paul Mwamlime said Kachimanga, on the night of January 6 2017, was found in possession of the illicit drug in a plastic bag which was concealed in his clothes.

“The court heard that the officers manning Kaombe Roadblock were tipped of a suspicious man using unchatered routes. Following the tip, police mounted an ad-hoc roadblock at Kaombe Bridge where he was arrested,” said Mwamlime. The offence is contrary to section 4(A) and 19(1) of the Dangerous Drugs Act of Malawi.
