Watch: A 34-year-old man caught along Wilowvale Road in Southerton with illicit drugs. The Zimbabwe Republic Police has been tightening its grip and taking down illicit drug lords and runners supplying and distributing drugs across the country. In the mix of things, the police have been doing several stop checks and raids on suspected criminals who are known.
However, Munyaradzi Mudyiravanji happens to be the latest runner being nabbed. The 34-year-old drug dealer was nabbed after he was alleged with illicit drugs at a police checkpoint along Wilowvale Road in Southerton.
Suspected drug trafficker Munyaradzi Mudyaravanji, who was in possession of 50 bottles of Broncleer cough syrup, was arrested this afternoon at a roadblock along Willowvale Road.
A viral video has since flooded social media of Munyaradzi sitting down and being interrogated by police officers. He had several bottles of illegal cough syrups that were not bought over the counter. Watch the video below:
The syrup is only sold to one who has a prescription from the doctor. They are usually smuggled into the country from South Africa. However, the illicit drug has since flooded several substances and destroyed thousands of youths’ lives.

This year the police have intensified their effort to reduce drug abuse and distribution in Zimbabwe. Their fruitful raids show for it. A few weeks ago, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) made it known that they have arrested several drug traffickers in isolated incidents of drug possession and trafficking in the past month.
Taking it to Twitter, the ZRP shared a series of Twitter threads giving an update on their ‘No to cross border crimes’ campaign. In one of the tweets, they have it that they managed to intercept a truck carrying a passenger possessing a dagga.
“Members of the Police deployed on operation, ‘No to cross border crimes’, arrested Zenzo Mangena (38) at Bubi roadblock, along Beitbridge Masvingo Road, for illegal possession of dagga. The dagga was packed in three plastic bags stashed in a UD 90 truck where the suspect was travelling. The weight and value of dagga are yet to be ascertained,” read the ZRP statement on Twitter.
