1.5 tonnes of bhang estimated at approximately Sh4.5 million was burnt in Nyando sub county by Police officers. – By Gerald Gekara.
While presiding over the destruction, Nyando OCPD Leonard Matete said police officers nabbed the banned substance along Kisumu-Nairobi road.
After a rigorous court process, the Police were given the go-ahead to destroy the stash in full glare of the public as a testament against drug trafficking.
Matete thanked members of the public who tipped the police off, enabling them to impound the consignment which originated from Busia, along the Kenya-Uganda border.
He urged residents to keep reporting incidents and leads and on its part, the police would continue to be vigilant along the highway to make more arrest of offenders.
