The Zimbabwe Republic Police national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi says so far more than a thousand drug suppliers and peddlers have been arrested under a special operation to curb the vice.

In an interview with Zimpapers Radio News, Assistant Commissioner Nyathi thanked members of the public for assisting police in bringing to book the drug peddlers and warned the drug suppliers that law enforcement agents will continue with the blitz.

A massive campaign code named 'no to dangerous drugs and illicit substances' was launched last week, following government's call for the police to redouble efforts against drug lords supplying the illegal substances to the youths.
