Three arrested for selling dope cakes to students

By ‘Mantoetse Maama

MASERU — Three people were arrested last week for allegedly selling drug laced home-made cakes to school children.
Police spokesperson Masupha Masupha confirmed the incident adding the suspects had since appeared in court last Thursday.
They were granted bail of M300 each.
“Thabo Musi, Lerato Mofoka and Moeketsi Mohapi were selling cup cakes (cakes mixed with drugs) to primary and high school students at Makhetheng Taxi Stop. They were also selling the cakes to tertiary students,” Masupha said.
“The three suspects are charged with violating the Drug Abuse Act Number 5 of 2008 section 43 that says production includes the manufacturing, planting, cultivating, growing, or harvesting of a controlled substance.”
It is alleged students who ate the cakes stripped naked once they got high.
Others are alleged to have been sexually abused while they were intoxicated.
Masupha said they had been informed that some drugs were being sold at tertiary institutions for as little as M300 a sachet.
“They call it “Plastic” and when they need it they go out of their way to source money to buy it.
“It hurts because drugs are now being sold to our young children at primary level.
“We need help from the public to stop this because this affects the whole country as these young people are the future of this country,” he said.
