Talk about not being too smart, you can add Nobanda Nolubabalo as one of the dullest knives in the drawer.
The 23-year-old South African woman llegedly matted 1.5kg of cocaine into her dreadlocks and boarded a plane from Brazil to Bangkok.
Had she been successful, she would have netted $1,925. (Talk about being a mule literally.)
Nolubabalo, who was coming from Brazil, was busted in Thailand after authorities discovered a suspicious white substance in her hair. The substance turned out to be cocaine wrapped in plastic and concealed insid eeach lock.
If you didn’t know, they don’t play with drug smuggling over in Asia. Just one day prior, another South African was put to death by lethal injection for trying to smuggle 3kg of crystal meth into the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou in November 2008.
