ECD Pupils Involved In 'Drug Trafficking' In Primary Schools - ZNAMH

Drug ‘trafficking’, as well as drug abuse, is said to be rampant in primary schools. This was revealed by the Zimbabwe National Association of Mental Health (ZNAMH).

The Association carried out a research and came up with some shocking revelations. ZNAMH board member Nyaradzo Nyavese said:

The other time I went to a church where I was invited to speak to Sunday school children about drug abuse and I thought they would be a bit older. I was shocked to find Grade 3 and 4 children.

I asked them what they knew about drug abuse and they told me ‘mangemba, mapiristi emapenzi’ (mangemba are pills for mental disorders). I was touched because those children were young, others were in ECD. They told me that some of them are actually selling drugs in primary schools.
