A 37-YEAR-OLD Harare woman appeared at Harare Magistrates Court yesterday facing allegations of illegally dealing in dangerous drugs.
Revai Mangani was caught with crystal meth worth $150 000 on Christmas Day by detectives from the CID Drugs and Narcotics Unit.
Crystal methamphetamine, commonly referred to as mutoriro in street lingo, is a dangerous drug derived from methylenedioxymethamphetamine which was already listed in Part II of the Schedule in the Dangerous Drugs Act and so anyone found dealing in the drug or even just possessing it is liable for prosecution.
Circumstances that on December 25, detectives from drug and narcotics received information that Mangani was dealing in dangerous drugs at her place of residence in Highfield, Harare.
Acting on the information, the detectives visited her place where they spotted her serving a client leading to her arrest.
Mangani appeared before Magistrate Babra Mateko who remanded her out of custody to today.
It is alleged that Mangani led the detectives to where she kept the contraband and upon search, police found the accused person with dangerous drugs such as crystalline meth Guka or mutoriro with a street value of $150 000.
Crystal meth is the common name for crystal methamphetamine, a strong and highly addictive drug that affects the central nervous system. On the street, it’s called, “glass,” “meth,” “mutoriro,” ice,” or “Guka,” among those who make, distribute, and use this highly addictive drug.
She was remanded in custody to December 29. Anesu Chirenje prosecuted.
