Arrested with bhang, released on bail

01 March 2013, 14:29 Ngarae Elias

A suspected drug baron was charged in a Kerugoya court for trafficking cannabis sativa (bhang) with a street value of KES 262 000 on Thursday.

Geoffrey Omondi was arrested on February 20 at Waigiri village in Kirinyaga County while transporting 1 050 stones of the prohibited drug in a car while in the company of some other people.

The accused denied the charges before the principal magistrate and urged the court to release him on bond.

He also requested that he be supplied with copies of the charge sheets.

The magistrate ordered the suspect to be freed on KES 200 000 cash bail until March 6 when the case will be heard.

Prosecutor Sammy Mbarani said police intercepted the saloon car at the village and Omondi was immediately arrested but his colleagues managed to escape.

He said police found bundles of bhang wrapped in Khaki papers stashed in the boot of the car.

The accused was taken to the local police station where he was interrogated and later charged with the offense.

Meanwhile in another court, a man was charged with impersonating a Teachers’ Service Commission director.

Alexander Mwaniki alias Dr Alex was charged that on November 15 last year at Kagio town, he presented himself to Gladys Wanjiku as a director at TSC in charge of secondary schools.

He also faced a second charge of obtaining KES 50 000 from Gladys Wanjiku pretending that he would employ her as a teacher with the TSC.

Mwaniki pleaded not guilty to the charges and applied that he be released on bond.

The acting principal magistrate Kenneth Cheruiyot ordered him to be released on KES 1million bond.
