Government to set up court at JKIA to prosecute drug traffickers

01 September 2014, 15:44 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The government is in consultation with Chief Justice Willy Mutunga to set up a court at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to deal with the increasing cases of drug trafficking in the country.

Speaking in Nyeri over the weekend, Transport and Infrastructure cabinet secretary Engineer Michael Kamau said establishing a court will help reduce the number of peddlers getting in and out of the country.

Kamau applauded government's efforts in fighting drug trafficking, stating that a number of peddlers have been nabbed at JKIA and at Mombasa port since President Uhuru Kenyatta took over country’s leadership.

Kamau who was accompanied by several legislators said that many families in the country have been affected by drugs and alcohol abuse.

Murang’a women representative, Sabina Chege urged the administration to bring to book and take stern measures against all the drug barons who are enriching themselves at the expense of the youth in the country.

She however blamed the administration for being reluctant in arresting the peddlers, saying that most  police officers know who sell drugs in the community.

Chege asked the National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) to set up functional rehabilitation centers to help youths who have been affected by alcohol and drugs.
