THE Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) has arrested two businesswomen in Lusaka’s Kaunda Square Township for trafficking in cocaine weighing about one kilogramme.

The commission identified the suspects as Atines Folotiya aged 58, a resident of Kaunda Square and Ana Daka, 57, a resident of Twapya in Ndola, who were arrested following a search at Ms Folotiya’s house in Kaunda Square In Lusaka.

DEC Public Relations Manager John Nyawali who disclosed the arrest yesterday, said the duo was found with about a kilogramme of cocaine and about four kilogrammes of ephedrine, a controlled chemical which is sometimes used to manufacture stimulant drugs that are popular among youths.

Mr Nyawali said the two are suspected to have trafficked the narcotics from an East African neighbouring country.
