Kwaito artist & actor Howza, formally known as Tshepo Mosese, was arrested for having 4.4g of dagga in his possession in Honeydew, Johannesburg.
The actor confirmed his arrest and that he was buying the dagga for himself.
“I was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” he is quoted as saying.
According to court papers police spotted two African males exchanging a parcel while they were doing a routine patrol in the area. Upon investigation, police discovered that one was Nigerian and the other South African.
“The other man also got into his car and drove away,” the police said.
The police said in an affidavit they followed Howza to Olievenhoutbosch Road where they signalled him to stop. Then they asked him to take out the parcel he got.
He was searched and cops found dagga in the school bag he was carrying.
Howza was reportedly taken to Honeydew police station where he was charged with possession of dagga. He was released on R1 000 bail.
