Bulawayo Residents Sell Out Popular Drug Kingpin With $2 million worth of Crystal Meth
Police in Bulawayo burst one of the popular drug kingpins in Magwegwe North Surbub on Friday. This came after residents from the area reported the man to the police.
Misheck Tembo, a 43-year-old man from the Magwegwe North suburb in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, has been arrested for drug trafficking. The police were tipped off that he was selling drugs in the city centre, leading to his arrest on Friday. When detectives approached him, pretending to be clients, they found a plastic bag containing three sachets of crystal methamphetamine in his possession.
Tembo led the police to his house, where they conducted a search and found another bag of crystal methamphetamine, two transparent plastics containing cat (methcathinone), plastic packaging, and a silver digital scale. In total, the drugs weighed 375 grams and 15 grams, respectively, with a street value of $2,349,000.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident and applauded members of the public for their help in providing information that led to Tembo’s arrest. He urged the community to continue participating in the fight against crime and warned criminals that they would be caught and brought to justice.
Drug trafficking is a serious offence that has devastating effects on individuals and communities. The illegal drug trade fuels addiction, violence, and organized crime. It also undermines the rule of law and destabilizes economies. The authorities in Zimbabwe have been working tirelessly to combat drug trafficking and other forms of organized crime. The arrest of Misheck Tembo is a significant step in the right direction.
The arrest of Misheck Tembo sends a clear message to drug traffickers and other criminals that the long arm of the law will always catch up with them. The public is encouraged to continue cooperating with the police and other law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime. Working together can make our communities safer and more secure for everyone.
