MBABANE – It is no longer uncommon to experience dagga wars in peaceful Swaziland.


One of such wars was, however, averted when a group of men who had been robbed of the illegal drug were arrested after they allegedly hijacked a taxi because they did not want the said thieves to recognise them as they approached.


Before embarking on the trip, Stephen Gamedze (23) of Mpaka under Chief Ndlondlo and Celumusa Maziya (30) of Nhlambeni under Chief Matatazela, who were travelling with Mduduzi Dlamini and Ndumiso Sangweni were robbed of dagga by some men at KaNcesi in the Hhohho Region.


Gamedze said this was after they had purchased the dagga at E26 000. He stated that they had travelled only less than a kilometre when a group of men who were heavily armed demanded that they give them the dagga.
According to Gamedze, their two friends, Dlamini and Sangweni, were the ones who robbed the taxi man of his vehicle which they were travelling in when they were apprehended by the Big Bend police.


He said they were going to claim back their dagga from their alleged robbers. Gamedze alleged Dlamini and Sangweni fled when the police stopped them.


Gamedze said he and Maziya were not aware that their friends had hijacked and robbed the taxi man, German Mbokodvo Nzima, of his vehicle, a Toyota Cressida registered QSD 878 BH. 


Maziya was allegedly hired at Nhlangano by Dlamini and Sangweni to fetch Gamedze and Maziya at Matsanjeni. Gamedze denied that he and Maziya committed the offence but admitted that they witnessed it.
