15-year-old Boy Arrested While Trying to Sell Bhang to a Police officer

Cases of drug trafficking have been on the rise in Kenya. Few months ago, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) announced that nobody would be spared in the fight against crime, and cautioned law enforcement agents as the custodians of the law against engaging in drug trafficking which the government has declared a total war against.

A court in Murang’a has sentenced a 15-year-old boy to three years in jail for peddling bhang.

On Christmas day, unaware he was getting into a trap, the boy attempted to sell the narcotic to a police boss.

The minor was arrested in Mathare estate in Maragua town while peddling bhang.

He was found in possession of 12 rolls of bhang which he attempted to sell to Maragua Police Station OCS Cleophas Mangut who was in disguise.

Mr Mangut approached the minor and ordered for 10 rolls which would have cost him Sh500.

Not aware that he had fallen into a police trap, the minor retrieved the contraband from the gumboots he was wearing, upon which he was handcuffed and locked up at the station.
