A PREGNANT Zimbabwean woman has been arrested in Namibia on drug-dealing charges.

Priscilla Masa appeared in a Windhoek court on Wednesday with her co-accused, Sisa Heather Buthelezi, a South African national, charged with illegal possession of ephedrine, a substance used in the production of meth.

Police arrested the two on Monday and seized a 10kg bag of ephedrine worth US$1 million (N$10 million).

At their appearance, Magistrate Justine Asino told them they had a right to ask for State lawyer or hire a private one, but the suspects opted to represent themselves.

Masa and Buthelezi also face two alternative charges of dealing in and possessing a potentially dangerous dependency-producing substance.

The suspects were remanded in custody to February 27 next year to allow for further investigations.

Their bail bid was dismissed on the grounds that both are foreigners, have no assets in Namibia, and are therefore, likely to skip the country and abscond.

Another Zimbabwean was arraigned last week on allegations of killing his gay lover before stealing from him.

Brighton Maposa, 25, was charged with the September 19 murder of 27-year-old Namibian citizen, Jeffery Thaniseb

He was remanded in custody to March next year. Prosecutors say Maposa strangled his lover to death with a neck tie.

He went on to steal Thaniseb’s possessions, including a Sony video camera, a Netman, a memory card, cell phone, laptop and a DVD home theatre system, according to police.
