Zambian Court Punishes Student With Essay After Baking Cannabis Cakes


A court in Zambia has ordered a university student to write a 50-page essay on the dangers of drug abuse after he was convicted of intending to sell cakes laced with marijuana.

Chikwanda Chisembele, a first year civil engineering student at the Copperbelt University, was arrested on Monday after he had backed the cakes.

The 21-year-old was arraigned at Kitwe magistrates’court, where he was ordered to write the essay as punishment.

He was also ordered to write letters of apology to his university, parents and to the Drug Enforcement Commission before November 15.

Other than that, the court slapped him with a two-year suspended jail term, meaning that he will not spend any time in jail unless he commits another offence.
