Police publicist Edwin Kaunda said Madzamba was caught with the illicit substance on June 13, this year, when travelling to Zimbabwe via Mwanza boarder post.

According to Kaunda, the court the heard that the Zimbabwean, who was travelling by commercial bus, was caught during the occupants’ luggage search at the border post.

Upon searching Marvelous bag, police officials found the substance and immediately took her to Mwanza police station.

“The following day of her arrest, the substance was taken to Bvumbwe research station for examination and results showed the substance was indeed cannabis sativa," said Kaunda.

"Thereafter, Marvelous appeared before court on the June 16, 2017. She pleaded guilty to the charge of being found in possession of Indian hemp.

“Although the convict pleaded for leniency, based on children who depend on her, His Worship Ranwell Mangazi said that cannabis sativa is a dangerous drug which contains psychoactive components like tetrahydrocannabinol.

"People found in possession without permit, deserve stiffer penalties."

Court heard that Madzamba hails from Goromonzi.
