    US$112 000 heroin stashed in corpse

    HERALD: Tuesday, 30 October 2012 00:00
    Farai Kuvirimirwa Court Reporter

    TWO suspected drug pushers were arrested for allegedly trying to steal a
    corpse stashed with over a kilogramme of heroin worth US$112 000 in Harare last
    week. Tanzanian national Mlawa Jumanne Ndumbogane (33) of number 119 Scedia
    Street in Pretoria, South Africa, and Mufungo Ngara
    (39) of Msiwa Village under Chief Mberengwa reportedly tried to steal the body
    of Tanzanian Ally Omari Mpili. Mpili reportedly died with 1,4kg of heroin in his
    stomach while in transit to South Africa on October 19.

    Ndumbogane and Ngara were not formally charged for unlawfully dealing in
    dangerous drugs when they appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs Olivia Mariga

    Mrs Mariga denied the pair bail and remanded them in custody to November
    12. Prosecutor Mr Tungamirai Chakurira told the court that Ndumbogane is
    unemployed and resides in South Africa while Ngara is self-employed as an
    unregistered transporter in the same country.

    It is alleged that on October 19, 2012, the suspected drug mule Mpili
    arrived at Roadport bus terminus in Harare from Tanzania, but failed to proceed
    to South Africa, his intended destination on the same day. Mpili, it is alleged,
    sought accommodation and slept in Braeside, Harare, where he died the same

    The following day, the court heard, detectives got information that Mpili
    had swallowed drugs prior to his departure from Tanzania. Mr Chakurira alleged
    that the drugs, which burst in his stomach, could have caused Mpili's death.
    Officers from Braeside Police Station took Mpili's body to a city funeral
    parlour for safekeeping while awaiting post-mortem to determine the cause of

    Mr Chakurira said on October 24, Ndumbogane and Ngara proceeded to the
    funeral parlour where they claimed Mpili's body. The pair was arrested before
    taking the body after police were tipped off that the two were claiming a body
    left by the police.

    A post-mortem done on October 25 at Parirenyatwa Hospital by a Government
    pathologist led to the recovery of creamish ampoules (small sealed capsules) in
    the deceased's intestines, the court heard.

    The ampoules tested positive for heroin. Mr Chakurira said the pair had
    full knowledge of the drugs and had no right to attempt transporting dangerous
    drugs to South Africa through Zimbabwe.
