A CHIPINGE drug queen arrested with 35 kilograms of marijuana has been freed on $15 000 bail.
Shupikai Sigauke (34) of Munyamana Village in Chipinge was not asked to plead when she appeared before magistrate Franklin Kwananzi this week.
Her trial has been set for March 18.
Prosecuting, Gift Bikita informed the court how police detectives raided Sigaukes home acting on a tip off that she was selling dagga from her home in Munyamana village.
They discovered the drug in eight plastic packets stashed in her spare bedroom.
It was weighed at 34,8kg and will be produced in court during her trial.
