Dagga case deferred

THE case of a 45-year-old Mpumalanga woman who was nabbed on Saturday after she was found in possession of dagga worth R25000 was postponed to tomorrow.

The woman was arrested at Tonga taxi rank. Tonga police spokesperson Sergeant Mzwandile Nyambi said police were searching passengers when they saw the woman shivering.

"We suspected that something was wrong about the woman and we approached her as she was trying to run away. When we opened her huge bag, we discovered a lot of dagga stuffed inside.

She tried in vain to bribe the police."
