Detectives apprehended a vehicle loaded with bales of cannabis sativa as it entered the city today. The marijuana, which was skillfully packed in 13 bundles, was discovered in a vehicle with four occupants that had traveled from Malaba.Three of the passengers were Benedictine Sisters, who were Catholic missionaries.
The clearly shaken nuns, on the other hand, were unrelated to the consignment because they had boarded the bus as passengers on their way to a Karen monastery.
The vehicle had been hailed down by detectives from DCI Langata division along the southern bypass, but the driver declined to stop, resulting in a high-speed chase that left the three missionaries silently chanting their rosaries and contemplating on the great mysteries.
Their hopes were finally answered when the ill-fated jalopy they were riding in couldn't keep up with the investigators' Subaru hatchback, prompting the driver to leap out as they approached Kabage and vanished into the darkness.The package and three jerrycans carrying 35 litres of locally distilled Chang'aa brew were discovered after a search of the vehicle.
The sisters revealed to the cops that they were trying to stay away from the narcotics.They had boarded the van at Malaba on the Kenya-Uganda border, paid their fare, and were about to be dropped off in Karen when the investigators waved it down.
