Marijuana dealers woke up to sad news following a raid by police on their farm with bhang worth over Ksh81 million.
According to the Naivasha Sub-County Commissioner, Mutua Kisilu, they managed to burn bhang worth over Ksh81 million following a court order. Kisilu notes that the farming of marijuana might have been going on behind the backs of the residents near the farm.
During the process, over 2500 stems were set ablaze at Naivasha dumpsite as the Sub-County Commissioner supervised.
Other suspects involved in planting of the bhang are still at large but the police are continuing with the search as they follow leads.
The drug was retrieved by police officers last week at the Kedong ranch in Mai Mahiu. During the raid, fourteen suspects that were found at the ranch were arrested and brought before court.
However, during the court hearing, the Chief Magistrate, Kennedy Bidali, denied the suspects release on bond following an appeal made by the prosecution. In addition, Bidali ordered for the bhang to be burnt immediately.
Kisilu also says that they will not rest unless all the cartels involved in the drug trades are brought before court. Furthermore, an aerial survey will be conducted in order to establish whether there are any bhang plantations between Mai Mahiu and Narok.
Currently, cakes from kiosks around schools have been collected for lab tests following claims that they contained drugs.
Briefly, the commissioner noted the current school unrest might be due to use of drugs.
