Police in Eldoret have nabbed 33.5 kilograms of bhang that was being cultivated in one of the rental houses within Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county. However, the exact location where the illegal drug was recovered was not revealed to the public.
According to a video shared by NTV Kenya, the relevant authorities had already arrived at the scene and the plant was seen at the rental house. Some of the stems had been planted on the compound inside empty containers while others were planted inside the houses.
The plant was well cultivated with all the condition required for plant growth enforced. Others were supported with ropes and blocks probably to prevent them from collapsing. The police officers were surprised to learn that the bhang were labeled with different names.
According to the officers, they had already informed the DCI and they were tasked to take over the operation. They will investigate the incident and unravel the suspects behind the idea of growing the plant. At the time of going to press, it was not revealed if any suspect had been arrested. Here are Kenyan's reactions.
