Kenyan drug smugglers are getting creative in the way they transport their drugs into the country. From using fuel tankers to ambulances and high end Prados, smugglers try to find he least suspicious transport mode. Earlier today, police busted a lorry full of bhang after a tip off.
According to Police sources, the officers who intercepted the vehicle did not find any drugs as the back of the lorry was empty. They were however suspicious as the car's tires indicates that the lorry was indeed carrying a heavy load. On further inspection, they discovered that the lorry had a false roof. The drug smugglers had created a compartment at the top of the lorry to fool police manning roadblocks.
Drug smugglers have come under intense pressure this year as the government steps up it's surveillance. Earlier this year a KDF Major was arrested with a colleague smuggling bhang from Ethiopia. Last week an ambulance smuggling bhang rolled killing 3. The pressure has seen traffickers switch from the Marsabit-Nanyuki route due to increased arrests. Authorities have identified the Moyale -Wajir-Garissa route as the new drug route.
