Zimra officers at the Forbes Border Post in Mutare intercepted a truck carrying 2.1 tonnes of weed.
The seizure was confirmed by Zimra Forbes Border Post station manager Mr.Z Nelson Chuma who said:
“What happened is that the truck was coming from Malawi, according to the documents we have. It came to the border and declared as an empty container.
What they simply did was just to knock around the container and as they were doing so they noted from the different sounds coming from the same container that there was a false compartment.
They asked the driver to assist them can check inside. He opened the main door of the container but the driver was no longer cooperating at all and kept asking irrelevant, questions.
…there were 93 bags of the drug, which weighed 2,1 tonnes but could not immediately ascertain its value” said Chuma.
The driver fled the scene and the matter was referred to ZRP.
