According to Esau the offender did not know he was marketing his illegal business to police officers since they were in civilian clothes.

“Constable Florida Kolomba together with other police officers were at Sambani lodge celebrating mothers day.”

“The offender offered canabbis sativa to them. Consequently they reported him to other police officers who were patrolling the lodge. They arrested him and seized two cobs and 20 twists of cannabis sativa,” said Esau.

He will appear in court soon to answer charges of being found in possession of cannabis sativa which is contrary to regulation 4A and section 19 of dangerous drugs act.
