All the plants have since been uprooted after having been documented by Eldoret based directorate of criminal investigations scenes of crime personnel.

The weight of the plants was established to be 33.5 Kgs with an estimated street value of about one million Kenya Shillings.

Preliminary investigations have linked a man identified as Kipchumba Michael Kibet to the racketeering. A heightened manhunt has since been launched with intentions to arrest the main suspect and bring him to justice.
