Mliswa applauds police for his daughter’s arrest


Temba Mliswa has applauded the Zimbabwe Republic Police after his daughter was arrested.

Mliswa’s 20-year-old daughter, Mdiwa Mliswa Chanetsa, was arrested last week in Avonlea, Harare, for possession of illegal drugs.

She was apprehended alongside 27-year-old Tawanda Chigudu.

They were charged with unlawful possession of dangerous drugs as defined in section 157(1) (a) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 09:23 as read with section 14(2) of the Dangerous Drugs Act Chapter 15:02.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, Mliswa disclosed the arrest of his third daughter on a drug charge.

He underscored his steadfast commitment to refrain from using his public influence to intervene in the legal process.

“One of my daughters, the third born who stays with her mother, was arrested over a drug charge. I have made the tough decision to lay it out here for posterity, clarity and factuality to prevail before the issue is bastardized in the social fora.”

In a threaded post, Mliswa revealed how his daughter has consistently refused to follow the guidelines he sets for all his children.

“She is a brilliant kid who has done well at school but, in the past, has refused to abide by the roadmap I apply to my other kids. At 18, I sat her down on her future plans, but she refused it, even to stay with me. This isn’t to blame her mother but to reveal how she is as a child.”

Mliswa advocated for stricter penalties against drug sellers, emphasizing the hazards associated with drugs.

He suggested that penalties for sellers, including politicians, should be even more severe due to the potential harm caused to others.

“The penalties for those who sell, even politicians, should even be stiffer as they endanger other people.

“Peddling drugs should be equated with attempted murder as the path of drug use is one highway to death. I have seen children in a mess because of drug use,” he said.

Mliswa applauded the Zimbabwe Republic Police for their commendable job.

He expressed hope that, following the arrest, his daughter would undergo a positive transformation.

“I commend the ZRP for a job well done in dealing with the drug problem. For her, I hope this may be the Damascus moment from which she emerges changed and ready to be transformed. I will continue supporting her as my daughter and pray that she sees the light away from this path.”

He argued that if his daughter has fallen victim to misguided friends, it is high time she finds new companions who won’t lead her astray.

“If she is a victim of friends then she must find new companions. Rehabilitation may be the way to salvation after this. This is tough love I’m giving as I believe massaging one when they are into drugs can be ultimately fatal in the long run,”Mliswa said.
