ZANZIBAR International airport has renovated a special toilet to be used in detecting drug traffickers. "This is a big step in our campaign against the drugs in the Islands," the Second Vice President Ambassador Seif Ali Iddi said when inspecting the toilet after it was renovated.
He thanked the police in collaboration with other stakeholders in improving security at the airport including sniffing drugs out of the stomach and making sure that criminals use the 'special toilet' to defecate it.
Head of the police anti Drugs unit in Zanzibar- SSP Mkadam Khamis, said any suspected travellers at the airport would be required to enter into the 'standard toilet' in detecting drugs hidden in stomach.
Khamis said that the toilet would play a major role in minimizing delays and bureaucracy in screening criminals carrying drugs in stomachs. The police officer informed ambassador Seif that despite challenges caused by lack of more modern screening machines and difficulties in identifying money laundering, security at the airport has been improving drastically.
