The Anti-Narcotics Unit (ANU) Malindi on Saturday apprehended two suspected traffickers who were in possession of bhang valued at Ksh.12 million weighing over 429kg.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the officers responded to a tip-off that a truck driven by Joseph Nzomo, 28, and his conductor Auress Godfrey, 27, was to be used as the transportation vessel of the contraband.

"The officers swiftly followed leads to the truck, ambushing the unsuspecting duo at an open field while flexing muscles in readiness to load seven sacks of the prohibited herb," said DCI.

The suspects were escorted to Mariakani Police Station where the truck was also impounded.

This comes amid a heightened crackdown on the sale of illicit drugs and substances in the country as authorities continue to warn that they will not spare anyone found culpable.
