The city of Bulawayo is in a state of shock as they learn that street vendors near school gates have found a new hustle – selling Space Muffins with a side of drugs!

The BPRA is on a mission to remove all suspect vendors from school gates and curb the drug epidemic that is plaguing the city. They have teamed up with health experts from institutions like Ingutsheni Hospital to educate the youth on the dangers of drug abuse. The BPRA Chairperson, Ambrose Sibindi, says they are working hard to make use of their youth desk by embarking on educational campaigns and calling in the experts.

The BPRA is also taking matters into their own hands by calling in the police with their sniffer dogs to catch these drug-dealing vendors red-handed. The extent of the drug problem in the city has reached alarming levels, and it’s time for the community to take a stand and strive for a drug-free city.

“The extent of the drug problem in our city has reached alarming levels. Let’s take a stand and strive toward a drug- and crime-free city.” the page tweeted.

However, not everyone is convinced that the responsible authorities are doing enough to protect residents from drug peddlers.

Bulawayo resident Nkosana Sengwayo feels that drug traffickers and kingpins are among the most influential people in the city and that they should be protecting the residents, not selling them drugs. It’s time for the city to come together and deal with the drug abuse epidemic among young people.

“People in Bulawayo know exactly who the drug traffickers and kingpins are… Influential people, people who should be protecting us; people in law enforcement. They were named in the 1st Ave and Nkomo (Main Street) flat raids in 2020-2021 and nothing was done about it,” he responded to Bupra tweets.
