According to Malimwe, in the wee hours of Tuesday a Mick coach Bus registration number NB 842 which was coming from Dwangwa heading to Salima arrived at the roadblock.

“Upon arrival at the said roadblock, passengers disembarked and police conducted the search and came across two bags full of the illicit drug.
