Crystal Meth in Zimbabwe: A Growing Problem

Crystal meth is a highly addictive drug that has become a growing problem in Zimbabwe. The drug is smuggled into the country through Zimbabwe’s porous borders with South Africa and is becoming increasingly popular among young people.

The Covid-19 pandemic has only made the problem worse. With many people out of work and struggling to make ends meet, more and more people are turning to drugs like crystal meth as a way to cope. The effects of crystal meth abuse can be devastating. The drug can cause serious health problems, including heart attacks, strokes, and seizures. It can also lead to mental health problems like depression and anxiety.

Despite the dangers of crystal meth abuse, many people in Zimbabwe continue to use the drug. This is partly due to the lack of awareness about the dangers of crystal meth and the lack of resources available for those who want to get help.

As James Manyika has said, “We need to take a comprehensive approach to addressing the problem of drug abuse in Zimbabwe.” This means not only providing resources for those who want to get help but also raising awareness about the dangers of crystal meth abuse and working to prevent drug abuse before it starts.

If you or someone you know is struggling with crystal meth addiction, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. There are many resources available in Zimbabwe for those who want to get help, including support groups and treatment centers such as Marondera Provincial Hospital. Together, we can work to raise awareness about the dangers of crystal meth abuse and help those who are struggling with addiction.
