MPUMALANGA cops have arrested an 82-year-old elderly woman for allegations of dealing in dagga.

The gogo was expected to appear in the Nkomazi Magistrates Court on Friday, 13 May.

According to spokesman Brigadier Selvy Mohlala, officers in Tonga were patrolling near the borderline in Magudu, Nkomazi, on Thursday, 12 May, when they spotted a minibus with commuters.

“The kombi was stopped and a search conducted. The elderly woman was allegedly found wrapped with dagga around her body, weighing at 3,88kg and estimated at the street value of almost R6 000. She was arrested and charged for dealing in dagga,” Mohlala said.

Investigation have since revealed that the gogo was allegedly trafficking the dagga to Bushbuckridge.

Commissioner Lieutenant General Semakaleng Manamela has urged adults to set a good example to the younger generation rather than being involved in criminal activities.
