131 teenagers were arrested by Police in citywide raids across Bulawayo on Saturday evening in an operation targeting so-called Vuzu parties where teenagers abuse drugs and alcohol.

Among those arrested were 15 teenage girls, the youngest just 13, said acting Bulawayo police spokesman Abednico Ncube.

“We discovered alcohol, drugs and used condoms,” (image below) Inspector Ncube told the ZBC.

The teenagers are due in court today facing charges of criminal nuisance and public drinking, police said. Police say teenagers in Bulawayo are known to organise drugs and alcohol-fuelled parties on the first weekend at the close of the school term and the last weekend before a new term.
