HARARE, Aug 16 (Reuter) - Isaac Kawenyi Chirwa of Malawi told a
Harare court he was going to use nine kgs of marijuana to bathe in
the Indian Ocean to appease evil spirits in his body.
Chirwa, 23, was arrested by Zimbabwe police with the drugs while
in transit to South Africa. He told the court on Monday that a Malawian
traditional healer had prescribed them to cure his heart palpitations.
Two medical doctors had failed to help him, he said. The magistrate
has ordered two doctors to examine him to verify his claim.
