2 Malawians arrested for trying to smuggle marijuana into Zim
The private 'NewsDay' paper says the haul is worth around one million US dollars.
The truck was en route to South Africa with the contraband hidden beneath more than a thousand sacks of wheat bran.
The private NewsDay paper says the haul is worth around US$1 million.
Police detectives swooped on the truck while it was at a border post near Mutare with a cargo of wheat bran last Thursday.
The vehicle is South African-owned and the drivers, both Malawians, are due to go on trial next week for unlawful drug possession.
This marijuana haul is one of the biggest in recent years; in 2014 nearly half a ton was seized in Bulawayo.
The drug had been smuggled in from Cape Town.
