Mombasa drug baron under police investigation

12 January 2015, 15:49

Mombasa - Security forces are tracking down a Kenyan national alleged to have recently returned from Canada and is linked to drug trafficking in Mombasa.

The Antinarcotics squad in collaboration with other security agents is pursuing the suspect, together with other drug barons in the country.

The suspect who police have not disclosed his name is alleged to conduct suspicious business activities in Kibokoni where police say hundreds of youths are drug addicts.

“He went to Canada in the 90s and now he is back with some funny business,” said Mombasa County Commissioner Nelson Marwa during a media briefing in his office on Sunday.

Marwa accused politicians in Mombasa of not helping in the war against drugs trafficking.

He told them to use the political platform in championing against drugs instead of using public forums to instigate hatred amongst regional communities.

“I don’t know why when we mention drugs issues in Mombasa every leader comes out bitterly, let it not be an individual’s issue,” said Marwa.

Meanwhile, police are yet to impound a government vehicle that Marwa had said was involved in escorting drugs in some parts of the county.

“The government will not sit back and watch. All leaders in this county should talk about this issue. If you are a drug baron you better look for another business to do,” he added.

According to the administrator drug barons are now establishing new ways of penetrating the market following tough security operations but it shows a few individuals are still derailing security operations on the war against illegal drugs trafficking in the county.
