A woman in Uganda went beyond her ways to smuggle banned cosmetics and hid them inside a dummy baby behind her back. However, all her efforts went in vain as she was nabbed while crossing the river Rubiiha in the Western part of Mpondwe. According to reports, the woman was trying to cross over to the neighbouring state of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
As per Uganda Revenue Authority, the woman carefully concealed banned cosmetics from DRC and was carrying it behind her back, as if she was carrying a child. Ugandan authorities claimed that it was a common modus operandi for smuggling. With unauthorised crossing points along the border, the authorities admitted they were having a hard time tracking down smuggling gangs.
Netizens who came across the Twitter post by the Uganda Revenue Authority appreciated her creativity. Some of them also appreciated the Ugandan authorities for their prompt action to track her down.
