A 23 year old man of Chandamali Compound in Choma will serve a prison sentence of one year after the court found him guilty of trafficking in Psychotropic Substances.

Honest Mweetwa appeared before Choma Principal Resident Magistrate, Idah Mupemo accused of being in possession of 107.3 grams of marijuana without any lawful authority on 24 June 2021.

Mweetwa’s conviction comes after he pleaded guilty, admitting that he wanted to smoke the weed.

Court records show that the Drug Enforcement Commission, (DEC) found Mweetwa with the weed in his pocket after a tipoff from a member of the public that he was trafficking in Marijuana at a named bar.

Magistrate Mupemo has since sentenced him to one year imprisonment with hard labor after considering that the accused person is a first offender.
