Royal Swazi Airways Stewardesses Arrested With Sedatives
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) _ Two flight attendants for Royal Swazi Airways were charged Wednesday with illegal possession of 40,000 tablets of the sedative mandrax.
The defendants, Princess Makhosazana Dlamini and Norsa Nerina Mkhwanazi, were not required to enter a plea but were ordered to return to court Tuesday.
Bond was set at the equivalent of about $1,175 for each woman and ordered them to surrender their passports until the case is settled.
Prosecutor Peter Mwangi said Ms. Dlamini and Ms. Mkhwanazi were arrested Sunday after they arrived at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport aboard a Royal Swazi Airways flight on which they had worked.
