A vehicle loaded with a consignment of cannabis sativa was last night seized by flying squad, as it made its entrance in Nairobi County.
The marijuana that was keenly parked in 13 bales was recovered from a vehicle that had come from Malaba, with four passengers.
Surprisingly, three of the occupants were Catholic missionaries from the Benedictine Sisters. The visibly surprised sisters were not linked to the Canabis because they had boarded the vehicle as passengers, going to a prayer in Karen.
Sleuths from the DCI Langata division had initially stopped the vehicle at southern bypass, but the driver defied the police orders occasioning a high speed pursuit that left the three missionaries tired.
Their prayers were finally answered by omnipresent when the vehicle they boarded, didn't match the speed of the Subaru car used by the sleuths, prompting the driver to jump out of the vehicle as before reaching Kabage area and fled into darkness.
It is after an inspection was done in the vehicle that the Canabis together with three jerrycans holding 35 litres of locally illicit Chang’aa brew were found.
The nuns who were surprised narrated to the flying squad sleuths that they initially boarded the vehicle at Malaba on the Kenya-Uganda border, give in their fare and the driver was to take them to Karen, when the sleuths stopped the vehicle.
A search for the culprits is still underway.
