The plant cannabis sativa is one that is illegal across the country and the continued efforts by the local and national administration to stamp it out, have been fruitless at times.
University of Kabianga Students at a past protest. Picture courtesy.
Bhang is smoked by a lot of people and over the recent past, there have been incidents where students were caught peddling the illegal substance at school.
This afternoon, multiple reports from Kabianga University are that a female third year student has been arrested by the authorities.
The student is said to have been caught peddling the substance in school which is contrary to the institution's rules as well as the law of this country.
The University which is located in Kericho County, had been closed a few days ago after riots by students over the increase in the schools fees.
The administration relented to the students frustrations and multiple sources say that the matter has been resolved amicably.
The arrested student is now in police custody pending arraignment in court for the illegal sale of the plant cannabis sativa in the institution's premises.
