According to Tanzanian local reports, there are more than 10 other suspects being investigated over drug trafficking in Tanzania. They include, Ray C, TID, Dogo Hamidu and Babuu wa Kitaa amongst others.
Over the years, Tanzania has been known as a transit country for illicit drugs to all around the world, ranking as one of the top countries in the drug trafficking business. A report done last year by the United States Department says that, “Tanzania is a significant transit country for illicit drugs, most notably heroin originating in Afghanistan and cocaine from South America, with a growing domestic user population. Tanzanian drug trafficking organizations and courier networks operate globally with cells throughout Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. These Tanzanian drug trafficking organizations play a prominent role in the Southwest Asian heroin trade. Tanzania also produces cannabis both for domestic consumption and international distribution.”
