Zambian reggae musician Maiko Zulu has turned down a Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) appointment as Anti Drug Use Ambassador.
The musician is currently serving a six months suspended sentence for possession of Marijuana after being arrested by officers from the DEC for being found in possession of 17 grams of cannabis.
Zulu says his rejection of the appointment follows intensive consultation with his family members, friends and his fans.
In response to his letter of appointment signed by the then DEC Acting Commissioner Solomon Jere made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Zulu said he ,however, remains committed to the fight against illicit drug cultivation, trafficking and abuse in Zambia.
Zulu pledged to partner with the Commission at various other levels in the fight against the scourge.
