DRUG TRAFFICKER SENTENCED TO 36 MONTHS IMPRISONMENT
Nelspruit: 31 March 2023- The speedy reaction by Wakkerstroom police resulted in the arrest of a 42 year old Vusimuzi Msibi on 07 June 2022.
Msibi who boarded a taxi from Volkrust was noticed by the whistleblower who immediately notified the police that the accused was seen in possession of drugs.
Police in Wakkerstroom urgently setup a stop and search operation where Msibi was nabbed with his luggage filled with nyaope.
After going on trial in court, the accused was sentenced on Wednesday, 29 March 2023 by the Wakkerstroom Magistrate’s Court to three years imprisonment, of which one year was wholly suspended.
The SAPS Provincial Management welcomed the sentence and applauded the excellent work by the Wakkerstroom police. The sentence will hopefully send a strong message to other drug traffickers that there is no space for drug peddling in the province.
