Drug mule writes to family in Grahamstown

Drug mule writes to family in Grahamstown


After at least a month and a half of having no contact with her family, South African drug mule Nolubabalo Nobanda has written to her parents from prison in Bangkok, Thailand.

In letters, shown to Sapa, Nobanda has written to her family in Grahamstown revealing critical information of how she landed up in Thailand.

Nobanda also wrote that she would not be charged by Bangkok authorities for the baking powder which was found mixed with the cocaine, when she was arrested.

Nobanda was arrested at Bangkok's International Airport late last year when police noticed a white substance in her hair.
They found 1.5kg of cocaine with an estimated street value of 1.2 million rand in her dreadlocks

Since then she has been detained in prison waiting for her formal court appearance on the 19th of March.

Nobanda wrote that she was in good spirits and upbeat about the coming trial since she would only be charged for attempting to smuggle 600 gramms of cocaine rather than the initial 1.5 kilogrammes as earlier reported.
This could considerably reduce her sentence.
