The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) on Wednesday seized Indian hemp weighing 29.5kgs at Mwanza Border.
The incident took place during routine inspections conducted on an Intercape bus coming from South Africa.
The carton’s owner, Prisca Musesa was immediately arrested by the Police.
The hemp, which is currently in Police custody, was disguised in well packaged bricks, sealed in a carton and suspected to be destined to another country.
MRA is appealing to members of the general public not to hesitate but tip the Authority about malpractices such as smuggling through toll free number 847 for Airtel and TNM subscribers or 80000847 for MTL subscribers.
Informants can also send their tips to the Centre through email address:firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 0182 229.
