A Tanzanian couple sentenced to life imprisonment for drug trafficking.


The High Court in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday, March 31 said the Pursuit convincingly confirmed its case against the suspects Abdul Nsembo, 45, and his wife Shamimu Mwasha, 41.


The court learned that Nsembo and Shamimu were, on May 1, 2019, arrested and in possession of heroin, which they were selling to Mbezi Beach residents in Kinondoni, Dar es Salaam.


Delivering his verdict on the case, High Court judge, Elinaza Luvanda, requested that the couple’s property, including a Land Rover Discovery vehicle, be repossessed by the State.



The judge also directed that the heroin, which was presented in the court as evidence, be destroyed by burning.


The couple has a 14-day window to appeal the court’s ruling.
