A JAILED drug dealer from Westgate said she regrets her actions as her arrest and conviction has separated her from her six-month-old baby.
Patience Murinda was convicted of illegally dealing in drugs last year and was sentenced to five years in prison.
Her husband was acquitted after a full trial.
“The love of money cost me my family life and I have been regretting dealing in drugs every day that I am behind bars,” said Patience.
“I could see how it affected my clients but for me, at that moment, money was more important than their health and careers.
“Ndakasungwa ndichiyamwisa mwana wangu anemwedzi mitanhatu.
“The baby will never enjoy the motherly love I am supposed to give.
“I am now languishing in jail and I do not know if my husband will consider waiting until I am released.
“Pamwe ndichawana aroora mumwe mukadzi mwana wangu achitambura,” said Patience.
She was among prison inmates, who attended the Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe Living Word Tabernacle assembly in Avondale, on Sunday.
