Duo arrested while transporting bhang worth KES. 5m to Nairobi

Police in Murang’a have arrested two suspects found in possession of bhang stacked in ten sacks with an estimated street value of Sh 5 million.

Dida Jarso from Moyale and Yusuf Halkano Sonkono from Isiolo were intercepted at a roadblock in Makuyu along the Kenol-Sagana while on transit to Nairobi.

The duo had managed to pass through several roadblocks from Ethiopia through the Isiolo corridor using fake cards indicating Isiolo County Government staff. One of the suspects had a badge purporting he was a nurse attached to Garba Tulla ward.


The suspects also had KES. 190,000 believed to be used to bribe their way past the numerous roadblocks.

The suspects shall remain in police custody until Tuesday when they shall be arraigned in court.
