The Anti-Narcotics Unit (ANU) Malindi apprehended two suspected traffickers and seized over 429kg of bhang, estimated to be worth Ksh12 million, in an operation Saturday.

The suspects, a driver and his turnboy were caught along the Mariakani-Mavueni road in a joint operation with ANU Mombasa counterparts.

Acting on a tip-off, officers intercepted a Mercedes-Benz Actros KAY 269J/ZC, poised to transport the illicit cargo.

They then ambushed the duo in an open field as they prepared to load seven sacks of the prohibited herb.

The 28-year-old driver, Joseph Nzomo, and his 27-year-old accomplice, Auress Godfrey, were detained and the narcotics were confiscated.

The suspects and the seized bhang were taken to Mariakani Police Station, where the truck was also impounded.

Authorities have issued a stern warning to traffickers and peddlers to abandon the illicit trade and pursue lawful income-generating activities, cautioning that the law will catch up with them and result in imprisonment.
