The court heard that on 13 September 2022, detectives from CID drugs and Narcotics Mutare were on patrol at Hot-springs Business Centre when they received information to the effect that the accused was selling drugs at her residence. This led to investigations after which she was found in possession of 6 sachets of crystal meth with a street value ZW$87 500. Prosecutor Mazvita Kadenha presided over the case and the accused has been remanded in custody to September 26.
