Two students from Mulungushi University in Kabwe appeared before the Magistrate court for trafficking in different quantities of Cannabis but the duo pleaded not guilty.
Ndambo Chinda, 22 and his co accused Missel Mwanza are alleged to have been found with 43 muffins and 32 grammes of Cannabis, they were arrested by the Drug Enforcement Commission and presented to court.
The court adjourned the matter to 25th June for commencement of trial but the duo remain remanded in custody because drug trafficking has no bail.
