CHIREDZI BUREAU

CHIREDZI – A man convicted of selling mbanje stunned a Chiredzi court when he asked the magistrate for permission to continue using mbanje.
Felex Chikwara (45) of Monyoroka Village in Triangle said he uses mbanje for medicinal purposes and therefore pleaded with Chiredzi Resident Magistrate Constance Mutandwa to give him a 'licence' to posses and use the banned drug.
Chikwara who was found in possession of 110grammes of dagga said he used the drug to clear a chest problem.
The State led by Doubt Phiri told the court that on October 21, 2017 cops raided the accused is  home after getting a tip-off that he was selling dagga. They conducted a search and found 110grammes of dagga in a plastic bag in his bedroom. 
Chikwara however, said he was a non-smoker but would only inhale the smoke by burning the herb while covered under a blanket. He said the pain would disappear the moment he got out of the blanket.
Magistrate Mutandwa convicted Chikwara and sentenced him to six months in jail with two suspended for five years. The remaining four months were suspended on condition that he does 140 hours community service.
