A Limpopo nurse has been sentenced for selling antiretroviral (ARV) drugs.

ARV drugs

Mokgadi Monica Ramusi was ordered to pay a R20 000 fine or face four years imprisonment, in the Morebeng Regional Court on Friday. 

The 45-year-old state nurse had been arrested in June 2016 after the Hawks found her in the unlawful possession of ARV tablets. 

The Limpopo Hawks spokesperson Matimba Maluleke says: "Ramusi was arrested by Hawks members for the unlawful possession of 24 bottles containing ARV tablets that she was trying to sell."

He says the investigation revealed the nurse had stolen the ARV tablets from the Botlokwa Clinic. 

Her arrest followed a tip-off.

She was then set up and allegedly tried to sell the tablets for R7500 to an undercover police officer.
