A BULAWAYO woman who was arrested last week after being found in possession of cocaine valued at $314 300 yesterday applied for bail.
Bulawayo magistrate Mr Franklin Mkhwananzi will deliver the ruling today at 11AM.
In opposing the bail application, the investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Character Moyo said Tshuma would abscond and interfere with State witnesses.
“It was the accused person who came and collected the parcel. The parcel had accused’s first name, middle name, her national ID number and her residential address. The contents of the parcel were tested and were discovered to be cocaine,” she said.
Tshuma’s lawyer, Ms Taboka Nyathi of Makiya and Partners said Tshuma, who is asthmatic, was not aware that the parcel contained cocaine.
She said Tshuma was a young person with a career ahead of her and was a proper candidate for bail.
Mr Nkathazo Dlodlo appeared for the State. zimpapers
